THANK YOU SO MUCH! And welcome to Jamie. I now have 25 official followers. YAY!
Come on people, I need more. Recommend me to your friends! PLEEASE!
So the last two weeks, I have been completely immersed in my Literature class. I'm taking class at National University, where they stick an entire semester class into FOUR WEEKS! Yeah, that's right.
I'm on Poetry overload right now. But I will say that where as before I was utterly terrified of poetry, I'm finding it not so scary. I've even found a few I like!
Here is one I liked, let me know what you think of it, and what you think it is about. (Without cheating and looking it up online!lol)
When You Are Old by William Butler Yeats
When you are old and grey and full of sleep,
And nodding by the fire, take down this book,
And slowly read, and dream of the soft look
Your eyes had once, and of their shadows deep;
How many loved your moments of glad grace,
And loved your beauty with love false or true,
But one man loved the pilgrim soul in you,
And loved the sorrows of your changing face;
And bending down beside the glowing bars,
Murmur, a little sadly, how Love fled
And paced upon the mountains overhead
And hid his face amid a crowd of stars.
What do you think?
