Thanks, guys, for a good response. That should keep me busy for days in the few minutes left after catching up with John Chung...
Jefferson, you sound best equipped for setting us homework! ?

Another idea would be to discuss 2 versions of a poem. To illustrate how minor changes (substitution of a word, insertion or deletion of a line, etc.) might alter the meaning or artistic impact of a piece.

Three contemporary 'family favourites' here are Brian Patten, Roger McGough and Ian McMillan, unfortunately Ian isn't on this site but he is on BBC radio quite a lot, I think you'd like his work if you haven't heard him perform already: -) T'lads from Barnsley tha' knows: -) Zephaniah is a star isn't he: -)
all the best
