Been radio silent lately but hopefully should be more on it from now on!

Planning on reading a poem a day and this little beauty seems like a good way to go about it!

jenniferw88 @TrishB I'm relying on Goodreads to find my poems. When I searched for 'lady' Ariel by Plath came up. I left it alone as I thought 'Trish is bound to pick that' but we both chose Tennyson instead! 😂😂😂 8mo
TrishB @jenniferw88 😂😂 Sod‘s law! I know I can probably always rely on a Sylvia quote so try and look at other things. I also try and make myself look at my poetry books before I search google! 8mo
jenniferw88 @TrishB I only have a few poetry books so I have to rely on Goodreads (it's also easier to copy the text rather than struggling to hold the book open and write out the quote!) 8mo
