Making time for Tennyson

I told myself I was too busy to blog this morning, so I would just toss up a quick post. Hah. Short this post may be, but I've just whiled away the last hour reading poems and bios online.

I hold it true, whate'er befall;
I feel it, when I sorrow most;
'Tis better to have loved and lost
Than never to have loved at all.
I have always enjoyed the poems of Alfred, Lord Tennyson, but I've never read much about the man himself, so I was fascinated by this piece at Today in Literature.

Thirsty for more, I Googled and found a longer bio of Tennyson at ("Ugly website. Brilliant content.") Do not miss any of the 15 footnotes to the bio. They're a hoot.
