In college, one of my sorority sisters turned me on to poetry. She was going through an odd stage as she was fascinated with death. During that year, she shared what the famous poets had to say about death with me. I knew quite clearly my view of death. Regardless, in those months I fell in love with poetry. I even secretly try to create my own from time to time. Today I was telling someone my favorite poem. I have not read it in a long time. I feel like I am in the dorm again!
Here is To a Skylark, by Percy Shelley. Enjoy!
