I’m planning to memorize some short poems and speeches, because I believe that having high quality writing stored in my head will be helpful for my own writing.
To memorize (not ordered):
1. Charge of the Light Brigade by Tennyson
2. Speech from the Dock by Emmet
3. The climbing towers poem by Xin Qiji
4. The looking for someone poem by Xin Qiji
5. Tian Jing Sha “Autumn Thoughts” by Ma Zhiyuan
6. Had I The Heavens’ Embroidered Cloths by Yeats
