Writing201: Poetry Potluck
So the hush hush assignment for the weekend is to share your most favorite poem. Right now two come to mind. Interestingly both are letters with the same theme. Love!

Beethoven’s mysterious love letters/poem. This is a rather cute one.
Most intriguing line/verse (for me) aka favorite part:
Your love made me the happiest and unhappiest at the same time.

They have their exits and their entrances,
And one man in his time plays many parts,
