Sometimes a title can really catch your attention. When I saw this one sitting in my inbox, I hoped it would be for TTBB or SSAA and it is. I think it was because of celebrating St. Patrick’s day in a particular way in my undergrad years that brought me initially to this piece. Turns out it is a love poem. Enjoy!
