When I first read today's Road Trip Wednesday question, hosted by YA Highway, I thought,

Oh crap.

Here's the question:

April is National Poetry Month! Share your favorite poem(s) or poet

I've read some great poetry in the past, but *cough* it's been awhile. Do you think I can remember a fave poem/poet? Um, that would be an obvious no. I know I've read poems that I've totally loved, I studied different poets in school, but nothing sticks and I don't have one book of poetry on my bookshelf. (I feel so ashamed.) I need to go watch Dead Poets Society- I used to love that movie and I'm sure there's a poem or ten in there somewhere that I love.

Anyway, I'm going to totally cheat because I finished Clockwork Princess a few days ago and Cassandra Clare likes to put poems at the beginning of each of her chapters and this is one I particularly liked:

If the past year were offered me again,
And choice of good and ill before me set
Would I accept the pleasure with the pain
Or dare to wish that we had never met?

-Augusta, Lady Gregory "If the Past Year Were Offered Me Again"

And now I'm going to totally mack off what YA Highway did for their song of the week except I've got something better than Benedict Cumberbatch. (What is it about Brits and their totally swoony voices?)
