I was wondering if there's actually any poems written by Jane Austen (Of course she had!). I grow fond of her since I read Emma a few years ago and honestly, I know not much about her *blush*. Guess what, I found 13 Poems by Jane Austen and I like it dearly! My favorite will be This Little Bag.

This Little Bag

"This little bag I hope will prove
To be not vainly made--

For, if you should a needle want

It will afford you aid.

And as we are about to part

T'will serve another end,

For when you look upon the Bag

You'll recollect your friend"

It's the shortest and easiest to understand (as for people like me). This literary work is a lot simpler and easier for me to interpret and find it very fascinating. There's comical nature of this poem which make it sounds very entertaining as well. It's about hope and friends, by all means, there will always be friends will help you no matter whoever they are. That's what I think of what its meaning. Am I that right about the poem? LOL

If you're not familiar with her written poems (like me!), find and read the other 12 at HERE. Which is your favorite? Love to share ;p

p/s: I just finished Sense and Sensibility. The review will come soon (I hope). I'm reading Emma now, and enjoy it utterly.
