"If You Knew," by Ellen Bass
I recited "Squire's Tale," from Canterbury Tales in senior English, in costume. I started dreaming and thinking in verse as I was inspired in college poetry classses.
Audre Lorde, Marie Howe, Dorianne Laux, Betty Adcock, Mary Oliver, Theodore Roethke, Ellen Bass: many more contemporaries and NC poets.
I'm a young poet, published, and in love with words. What can I do, but read and write. I rise early and find my mind most lyrical when I wake up each morning.
