    I had to learn and recite that poem for my Elocution exam many many years ago.
    I have never forgotten it !

    (The many people who know me.... would probably fall about laughing at the Honours Cert in Elocution as they know me not for poetic language but for "poetic" language...... )

    I love that poem:

    "as his horse in the silence champed the grasses of the forests ferny floor." I posted that without reading the side of Nomad's hotel.

    "Tell them I came and no-one answered, that I kept my word, he said."

    I seem to have a bit of a gap in the middle. Off to Google for a reread....

    We "dun" that pome in Y6, and I remember thinking (because saying out loud what you were thinking never seemed to go well) well, you had a plan and you arrived either too early or too late. Better think of another plan." Even then it didn't strike me as a poetic response.

    Its hard to imagine that I was recommended and went to elocution training before I started teaching.the tutor recommended that my Liverpool accent would be not understandable to children.
    To think I moved to east London and I didn't understand them!
