Printer-friendly version

Here are the “small and mighty” poems in our anthology — those with 25 lines or fewer.

This is a great place to start for students who are reluctant to read poetry, but keep in mind that shorter poems can be more difficult to recite than longer ones.

A student who is competing in the English Stream at the Online Semifinals and the National Finals must recite 3 poems, and one poem must have 25 lines or fewer. No other rules apply to their poem selections.
