My cherished and unconventional mother had us memorize this poem as children. I love the musicality of it... its potent images....but then, it is the Bard.
The poem still resonates now that we are having the coldest winter ( and perhaps wettest) winter recorded in 40 years here on the Riviera. Still it is only 50 F today so we can hardly complain.
I found this interesting fact on the blog of my good friend, Gail. Take a look at her Best of Nice Blog :http://www.bestofniceblog.com .
Her site is a good way to weed through all the sports and neighborhood news and get the kernels of the Nice Matin, our local paper ....and with her characteristic humor and sense of irony thrown in.
