Read poetry. Learn it by heart. Recite it out loud, in funny voices. I enjoy Jabberwocky (Lewis Carroll) and Come friendly bombs and fall on Slough (John Betjeman). When I was doing my O-levels, I learnt the Lucy poems (William Wordsworth) by singing them to the tune of O God our Help in Ages Past. Used to know a Dominic, who recited What is this life? (WH Davies) in a silly voice, sort of elderly posh lady at poetry recital.
