Amid the holiday kitsch, how about discovering your poetic animal alter-ego in this quiz I wrote for the Federation’s holiday page? Writing it reminded me of all the many creatures that appear across poetry from the obvious (Poe’s raven) to old favorites (Moore’s jellyfish) to the less obvious (Dickinson’s two butterflies, completely forgot about those!). Go down your own rabbit hole here.

Love that “A Jelly-Fish” made it to the list! I’m a mixture of Bs, Es, and Cs, though.
You were definitely in my mind when I was writing this! Such a great poem, but I would agree with the wisdom of the quiz–probably not much of a flighty Jelly-fish yourself.
