Thoughtful Thursday: National Poetry Month

April is National Poetry Month, and I love poetry! I've been writing it since I was a child and spent more than half of my college electives studying it. So I thought I'd dedicate this week's Thoughtful Thursday post to poetry.

My favorite poet is Dorothy Parker, and an oft-read, dog-eared, underlined, stuffed with bookmarks copy of The Portable Dorothy Parker sits on my bedside table. I even take it with me when I travel.

While it was hard to pick a favorite poem, I chose this one.

Faute De Mieux
Travel, trouble, music, art,
A kiss, a frock, a rhyme--
I never said they feed my heart,
But still they pass my time.
