That's great you love poetry! I don't read them although I think they can be beautiful!

An easy one this. I'd answer yes to most of them.

Dot said...

I really enjoy reading poetry too! There were many questions that I couldn't decide between the two on!

I'm impressed that you could keep your answers short - I tried, but failed. :-)

This has been a great challenge for getting to know other bloggers.

Interesting questions this week and I tried my dangest to keep the answers short without explanation. Good job. My post is up now.
