Having recently read Thomas Hardy's novel 'Far from the Madding Crowd' and with more of his books to read on my '1001 Books to Read Before I Die' list, I was actually more fascinated by his real-life story, than his fiction and poetry.
I've tried to get into poetry, but it's just not my thing -Poetry and the Gift of Forgetting?

The Rosie Effect?📖🌹This framed heart on the wall (above) wasn't here the day I first ate here and had the book 'Saved by a Poem' to give away -
|'1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die'|
|In Our Time: Thomas Hardy's Poetry|
|A Birthday Poem for Thomas Hardy by Cecil Day-Lewis|
|Emily Brontë by Cecil Day Lewis|
Going by the bookmark I found in the book I must have got it from Mary Ward Books.
It's a small ... but madding world it seems;-)
