Week 16

I`m sort of using cheat cards for the next two weeks now as well, but in a different way.  Splitting up such a huge poem should be allowed, and I have the added excuse of it being officially split originally.  The cheat card is actually the fact that it’s a song to me, and I only know it as a song, not as a poem. I only know the song version.  And I used to know the whole thing back in 2005.

The poem for today is:

The Highwayman

by  Alfred Noyes

I have now made myself several new categories on this blog under the apt headline of ‘Stuff I Memorize’.  Why?  Because I want to keep track of THAT too!

We already know I like to keep track of everything I do, so today I figured out I might as well have that list take place right here on this site, instead of opening yet another  kind of blog somewhere solely to track the things I memorize.

*coughMovieBlogcough*

And while I was thinking of this, I was also wondering if I might be able to make it into a challenge?  What if I actually try to memorize something new every week?  Wouldn’t that be just ruddy brilliant?  That’s  the kind of challenge I would really like to try!

Memorizing can be darned tough for me, it’s NOT a thing that comes easily, no matter what some people think.  I worked bloody hard for every single poem I know, it’s only a select few songs that really get stuck on my brain easily.  And that’s because they usually worm their own way in.  When I try to remember, it can take days.  So it’s not something that comes naturally, because lyrics and lines are two completely different things.

.

Anyways,  I think I`ll start noting down a couple of tidbits here and there.  I am still unsure about what system I should use, and how to list things properly.
