Is there anything more tragic than love that is not returned? Shakespeare was the master of capturing “unrequited love.” With this poem, that theme is explored with a post-modern take on the Apollo and Daphne myth… with a sprinkling of Chaucer for you other lit nerds like me.

**DIGITALLY REMASTERED** Please take the time to listen to the amazing movie-like narration by my friend Simon Howard on Twitter. Brings the poem to life magnificently!
