Birches


Earth's the right place for love:
I don't know where it's likely to go better.

- "Birches", Robert Frost

Nice snippet from Frost. Now time for us to find out more about you.

I was tagged with a meme and now TAG, You're IT.

Rules here

OMG Frost is only the bestest in the world. And yes I just used OMG in a sentence about Frost.

My number one fave is 'directive':

"And if you're lost enough to find yourself

By now, pull in your ladder road behind you

And put a sign up CLOSED to all but me."

Sigh.

Do you read and William Carlos Williams? He was a lifelong New Jersey man...

hooray, glad you like the frost :) many more literary quotes to come. i am a tad bit of a quoteaholic.

trina - i dunno about spring... we got a semi-surprising few inches of snow today!

lisa paul - oh my first tag! how exciting :) i'll think of something good and post tomorrow - thanks for thinking of me!

city sage, love that quote! how fantastic. and i do believe i've read some W.C.W., but not enough. never enough!

Thx for the updates, somehow I figured the 'annonymous Jared' could be unknown - I just figured I would act on my first reaction. Strange thing this internet, strangers can feel for each other, and be duped by strangers too, oh well. best.

thanks trina :) well, the first anonymous-jared WAS jared, being his usual sweet self :) i'm still wondering who the 2nd anonymous was, who asked if this was an official proposal, and who encouraged a bit of hoopla...
