I’m A Well-Tempered Bard

Jesi Kay

Jesi Kay, poet and aspiring novelist, was born in the Texas panhandle where wide skies, lazy summer days, and rolling thunderstorms sparked her imagination and left lasting memories in her blood. An early reader, poetry and mythology were her passions. So much so that when she was ten years old her step-father gave her his college mythology textbooks to read, which were full of classic poetry and more than enough tales to fill her romantic and inquisitive nature. Jesi loves reading, art, going to the theater, the romanticism of the Victorian era (but not the missing conveniences of indoor plumbing and central air conditioning), running when the heat and humidity cooperate, and cold weather so she can wear her favorite boots and knitwear. Also, she still has those college mythology textbooks, a little worse for wear over time but still intact and telling their stories to her. Jesi is a contributor at The Well Tempered Bards blog and at www.octpowrimo.com.

    COOOOOOOL! I’m running over to see your poem in a sec, but the Drum and Bugle Corps sounds FABULOUS!

    Well done you for all the tea and coping *HUGS*

      I was a little disappointed because it wasn’t exactly drums and bugles. It was complete marching bands but it was still awesome because it was marching bands. And the music was gorgeous and the weather, though humid and hot, was nice once the sun went down behind the treeline. It cooled off quickly then and made it really enjoyable.

        That sounds like a really fun time! I like marching bands – I think they’re marvellous fun, and so utterly UNLIKE anything we have here.

        But bugles – make me think of the Andrews Sisters’ song…and I LOVE that 😉
