Love is....

"Enter" by Irene Suchocki

"Politics"

How can I, that girl standing there,
My attention fix
On Roman or on Russian
Or on Spanish politics?
Yet here's a travelled man that knows
What he talks about,
And there's a politician
That has read and thought,
And maybe what they say is true
Of war and war's alarms,
But O that I were young again
And held her in my arms!

-William Butler Yeats

I am always drawn to the woods and the magic it seems to hold, so for me this is perfection!
