Poetry Tea and Feast of the Queenship of Mary

On Friday, we celebrated the Feast of the Queenship of the Blessed Virgin Mary by having a special tea.  We placed our lit candle and our blessed icon on the table, read from our Bible and said a decade of the rosary.

Miss M wanted to extend the time by reading poetry (she has been hosting regular family poetry readings every week), and so we grabbed several of our books and spent a pleasant hour taking turns reading poems. Our current favorites are Now We Are Six by A.A. Milne, and anything by Shel Silverstein or Robert Louis Stevenson.

The Boyscout even joined us (he is reading from a poetry for all ages app from his device.)

It was the perfect way to end our school week.
