This Idyllic, Melancholy Photo Of Taylor Swift On An Overcast Beach Is Proof That She’s Living Poetry

Taylor Swift on the beach

Let us recite an ode to Taylor Swift.

O’ Taylor Swift. How do we envy thee.

The “I Knew You Were Trouble” shared a meditative Instagram photo by the rocky sea, sharing a line from e.e. cummings’ classic poem, maggie and milly and molly and may: “For whatever we lose (like a you or a me), It’s always ourselves we find in the sea.”

Sure, Swifty! Her entire life is one long beautiful poem — lived in iambic pan-TAY-meter — from her touching feline companionship, to crafting foodscapes with the Barefoot Contessa, to simply being a flawless ray of light in a dreary winter morn…  Not to mention all that (probably) unrequited love with Ed Sheeran.

Now let us leave this meditative Taylor Swift scene with a poem:

There once was a girl from Pennsylvania Nantucket
Who could look cute wearing a bucket
She loves to whip her hair
She has lots of friends
Oh F*** it, we’re not good at rhyming
