Read from July 09 to 13, 2011

Forgive the format but I couldn't resist:

I read this collection
Whilst suffering the heat
Of another year's vacation
And found the writer neat.

While maudlin and morose,
Houseman's depiction of youthful love
As naive, beautiful and verbose
Fit my memories of it like a glove.
