Remembering Your Firsts

A friend mentioned that she just finished reading Spurling’s new biography of Pearl S. Buck and thoroughly enjoyed it. I shared that my appreciation of Buck started in childhood when I gave my very first book report on The Good Earth. My friend said the first poem she ever memorized was William Wordsworth’s “Daffodils” and can’t look at daffodils without saying the lines aloud, or in her head, to this day. We both laughed.
