National Poetry Month: Educator Barnes Reads – I May, I Might, I Must

I came across the poem “I May, I Might, I Must” by Marianne Moore in the book the Best Poems Ever – a collection of poetry’s greatest voices.   This short book contains 71 pages of poems by well known poets such as:  Emily Dickinson, Robert Frost, Langston Hughes, Edgar Allen Poe, Carl Sandburg, William Shakespeare, and Phillis Wheatley.  This would be a great book to use in an English class with students to analyze the various poems and learn about the poetic devices used by each author.

Check out the video to hear the poem.
