Poetry and a New Movie

I like poetry, though often it can be difficult to grasp initially and I find myself re-reading passages to really get my brain around the sentiment the author is trying to describe. One of the reasons I so enjoy the experience of reading poetry is that it makes me slow down, absorb, and engage in the experience of sharing between myself and another being.

Today I learned about the new movie Bright Star and I look forward to seeing it. The movie is set in regency England, it is about love, and poetry will abound as one of the main characters is John Keats.
