The Poet Laureate of the North Side...

Perhaps it's the alignment of the stars or maybe I'm just feeling lonely. Lately, I have been in quite a romantic mood. I find myself listening to love songs, reading poetry, choosing wine over my usual beer and burning candles. It's a little pathetic but I'm just being honest. It's all about love, right? There should be no shame in admitting these things. Here is a poem that I've cherished since I was a little girl. It's entitled "To Anthea" and it's by 17th century poet, Robert Herrick. It's pretty scandalous reading material for an 8-year-old but I was always ahead of my time ;)

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, United States
I'm living life in beautiful Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I hold a journalism degree from West Virginia University. I have worked in television news, fashion marketing, PR, and cosmetic sales. My love for writing and sharing with the world my various passions is strong. One of my many ambitions is to be published and continue creating in the fields of digital and print media, literature and film. In my free time, I enjoy listening to music, going to concerts, reading, following Pittsburgh sports and traveling as often as possible. Some of my favorite things include beauty, style, architecture, books, tarot and astrology, thrifting and my shih-tzu, Ireland. I’m engaged to the love of my lifetimes and we look forward to starting our next chapter together. If you have any questions or comments, I would love to hear from you!
