Poetry Walk Remix--Nature

In this project students select and mix lines from poetry with appropriate music. The theme of this mix was "nature walk."

We mixed Walt Whitman, Longfellow, and Trifonic.

“The smallest sprouts show there is really no death” (“A Child Said, What is the Grass” by Walt Whitman)

“Have you reckon'd a thousand acres much? have you reckon'd the earth much?” (“Leaves of Grass” by Walt Whitman)

“You shall possess the good of the earth and sun, (there are millions of suns left,) “(“Leaves of Grass” by Walt Whitman)

“This is the forest primeval. The murmuring pines and the hemlocks,
Bearded with moss,” (“Evangeline” Henry Wadsworth Longfellow)

“I bounded o'er the mountains, by the sides

Of the deep rivers, and the lonely streams.” (“Lines Written a Few Miles Above Tintern Abbey” by William Wordsworth )

The lines were mixed with Trifonic's "Transgenic" samples.

HI Chris
Love the sound of what you are doing. Would love to follow. Do note though that in your blog blurb under the heading you have a very funny typo!!

What makes you think that was a typo? We've got unorthodox views of education here in NJ ;).
