Biography of William Blake Beckett

William Blake Beckett poet

(Firstly, if you ever have any questions regarding the meaning of a particular part of a poem or the poem as a whole, feel free to contact me.)

I am an eighteen-year-old American college student currently in Oxford, Mississippi.

I am six feet tall and 185 pounds, give or take five or so.

I enjoy watching anime, reading, writing poetry, playing football (obviously) , eating, hanging around friends, playing video games, designing graphics (like my account's avatar) , and more of your average guy stuff (well, eating is normal, anyway) .

I am shy in real life, but under the masks of a pen name and the internet, I tend to open up. Otherwise I must get to know you first.

Currently a student in the Sally McDonnel-Barksdale Honors College at the University of Mississippi (Ole Miss) .

I have a sometimes over-zealous sense of justice and pride, but can both make and take jokes.

Reading one's poetry is a good way to get to know a person, but I will also chat if you wish. Just don't hold your breath on catching me online often, since my jobs keep me busy outside of school.

The Hillside

On a hillside in the North
a drummer boy marches
parading through flying lead
wading through marshes

Thrown in a war
he knows not about
he drums solemly
now there is doubt
