With her permission, I am sharing a letter I received -
quote:I am especially pleased to be a part of this learning experience for the students.
Dear Marge Tindal,
My name is Joy Delacruz. I am a Grade 3 teacher at Parsifal Waldorf School in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.
For the next four weeks, my class and I will be studying Native Legends. As part of this study, we will recite poems and sing songs in class.
I came across your website and your beautiful poems. I would like to ask permission to use two of your poems, "I Am Wolf..." and "Imparting Spirit".
We would learn them by heart and say them during our morning circle. The images your poems convey are ones that I think will touch my students in
such a way that will enliven the experience of hearing the legends, make it real and touch their hearts and souls.
If you have any questions, please feel free to e-mail me at this address.
Thank you for your consideration and for writing these personal and beautiful poems.
The Parsifal Waldorf School is a unique school of high educational standards and procedures.
I thank Joy for asking me to participate through the poetry of my heritage~
You may wish to check out the Parsifal Waldorf School at this site -
I share the links where Joy found my Native Indian Heritage poetry,
if you'd care to check out the two poems that will be used~
This is a true Thanksgiving blessing to me~
~*When the heart grieves over what it has lost,
the spirit rejoices over what it has left.
