Poetry - can it be relevant and exciting?

As teachers in the classroom, and library media specialists, it is important to remember what an impact there is seeing poetry instead of just reading it. I love listening to Maya Angelou when she recites her own works, and I still remember these two scenes from Anne of Green Gables, and can eve recite some of the lines, all because I saw it instead of just read it. I just wanted to share them with my fellow bloggers, teachers, librarians, etc...what do you think about teaching poetry, how do you make it more relevant, or at least exciting? Signing off!
