Content floats around an image, but not text

I have a two column layout on my site (one sidebar and the main column).

I have a pretty wide sidebar, so I've been trying to maximize the space by splitting content into two columns within the sidebar. When placing images this seems work fine, I simply float one series of images to the left, then wrap a second series of images around it.

Problem is, when I try to float a string of text, then wrap a second string around it, it completely ignores the float. I have no idea why. I thought simply using <div style="float:left;"> would do the trick, but not if I'm just using text.

Can anyone suggest some advice? What am I missing here?
