As you may or may not remember, one place I'm visiting on my upcoming adventure is the former home of William Wordsworth. In preparation, I downloaded an audible version of some guy reading his poetry.
Brilliant idea. I love it.
You may also remember my faovirte poet is Gerard Manley Hopkins. I enjoyed the Wordsworth poetry so much I decided to also download someone reading me Hopkins poetry.
Even better idea.
Last night I was listening to it while I went to sleep. It's so beautiful. The words he chose to put together sound like... dreamy. I was listening and drifting off to sleep when I heard "it is Margaret you mourn for."
I was awake right away.
I suddenly remembered that poem I had forgotten about and not read or heard in ages. I loved that poem! I listened a couple times and then fell asleep, so happy.
I'm going to share it with you.
Spring and Fall.
