Ok, strong title, but I wanted to hook you in. For the past 29 years, I have hated poetry. Most of these hostile feelings were based on the fact that I thought poems to be overly complicated and corny. Whenever we had to read a poem in class I would groan inwardly, and I absolutely dreaded when I had to teach the concept for two weeks to my students. I as far as saying that if I my loving husband wrote me a poem I would be annoyed.
However, since I have been blogging, and writing a few little poems of my own, I am actually starting to enjoy poetry! It is rather exciting to have an entire world of literature open up before me. It is like a mysterious, unknown road that I have just started down and I am riddled with anticipation and excitement.
I will no longer put poor Poetry on trial, or curse it without justification. 🙂
