  1. My favourite line has to be ‘the nights were feathered and warm’. I love unexpected and beautiful descriptions, and that line is the epitome of it! I think that I’ve connected with this poem the most so far – big fan! x

    1. Thank you so much!
      I’m the uncrowned king of descriptions haha, my friends call me the poet version of Proust because I describe things in so much detail, although I’m not remotely as brilliant as Proust.

      1. Ha! I was called the queen of descriptions in primary school! It seems as though we have that in common. Unfortunately I’m not as familiar with Proust as I ought to be, but you’re edging up to Wilde perhaps in my mind. He’s one of my all time favourites – so that’s a compliment! 🙂

      2. I like Wilde to a moderate degree. He has a description of poets in Dorian Gray that I find incredible:
        “A great poet, a really great poet, is the most unpoetical of all creatures. But inferior poets are absolutely fascinating. The worse their rhymes are, the more picturesque they look. The mere fact of having published a book of second-rate sonnets makes a man quite irresistible. He lives the poetry that he cannot write. The others write the poetry that they dare not realize.”

      1. I’m already done with the studying part, I’m actually working in Law now, but yeah, we are a rare breed. Art and Law rarely cross paths.
        And power to you sister, I know Law can be a real pain!
