The following poem best summarizes my character!
I know her by her angry air,
Her bright black eyes, her bright black hair,
Her rapid laughter, wild and shrill,
As laughter of the woodpecker
From the bosom of a hill.
'Tis Kate--she saith what she will:
For Kate hath an unbridl'd tongue,
Clear as the twanging of a harp,
Her heart is like a throbbing star.
Kate hath a spirit ever strung
Like a new bow, and bright and sharp
As the edges of the cimeter.
Whence shall she take a fitting mate?
For Kate no common love will feel;
My woman-soldier, gallant Kate,
As pure and true as blades of steel.
Kate saith "the world is void of might."
Kate saith "the men are gilded flies."
Kate snaps her fingers at my vows;
Kate will not hear of lovers' sighs.
I would I were an armed knight,
Far-fam'd for well-won enterprise,
And wearing on my swarthy brows,
The garland of new-wreath'd emprise:
For in a moment I would pierce
The blackest files of clanging fight,
And strongly strike to left and right,
In dreaming of my lady's eyes.
O! Kate loves well the bold and fierce;
But none are bold enough for Kate,
She cannot find a fitting mate.
--Alfred, Lord Tennyson
