Poetry was my first real love, after chocolate. Sara Teasdale was my confidant and teacher in the years I had no women to emulate. She reassures me, still. I've always been a huge lover of lyrics and songs. I still believe a well-written poem can move me with measure and presence that never leaves. Poetry, to me, is the song felt in your heart, long after the music has stopped.
Happy Saturday. Happy World Poetry Day.
