Text on left side of an image

I want to place text on the left side of an image.  This is what I have now:

<div style="width=50%; float:left;">
<p> some very long text some very long text some very long text some very long text some very long text some very long text some very long text some very long text some very long text some very long text some very long text some very long text some very long text some very long text some very long text some very long text some very long text </p>
</div>
<div style="float:right;">
   <img border="0" src="http://mountainbrookradio.com/images/thom.jpg" width="200" height="275">
</div>

Currently, the text goes all the way across the screen, and the image shows up underneath it.

That will work, but it wraps the text around the image.  I want the text to stay to the left of the image, even when it's gone below the image.
