Thy Classic Poetry Reading
Do you like poetry?
Well, even if you don't, you should still come for the following reasons.
- Come see an assortment of classic poems being performed live! And, hey, if that's not enough to sell you, I'll be there, too, performing "To Helen" by Edgar Allan Poe, which is, once again— a classic!
2. Do you even need any other reasons? I mean, I said I'd be there, didn't I?

About To Helen
The poem is based on Poe's alleged first love, the mom of one of his best friends. *cough* Awkard. *cough* He calls the girl "Helen", in his poem, because he's comparing the girl, who's actual name is Jane Stannard, to the Helen of Troy, the supposedly most beautiful girl in all of the world.
Having said that, why not come to the Poetry Reading that is, in fact, next Wednesday, December 16th?
