Half-heard in the Stillness said...

This is so true. As a girl I remember buying second-hand leather bound poetry books and lingering over the inscriptions in the front covers. Wondering.. remembering well, at least giving them my thoughts, those people long long gone before us. It really made me want to write something down...I still do it...I have an urgent need not to be forgotten.
