For my Introduction to Poetry class I took my first semester of college, our final essay had to connect themes from the poems we read in class to modern works. Naturally, I knew I had to find a way to connect the two poems I chose to the Avett Brothers. And I did. I don't know why I'm sharing this. I just really love seeing all the different connections and incorporating Avett into practically anything, pretty much. I also think it's interesting how closely the lines of the poetry related to the lyrics of the songs. And I guess I'm kind of proud of it, which is rare for me, since I hate my writing most of the time anyway. This four-page paper received an A (95%), so I hope it's enjoyable.
