Poetry, notes, and marginalia by William Michaelian
What an impressive collection, William. That's my idea of heaven: an eternity of the classics but without the sore eyes at the end of day.Thank you for keeping literacy alive.
“Use it or lose it.”Thanks very much, Conrad. In that kind of heaven, I’d gladly take the sore eyes in stride.
I can just make out your reflection in the glasses :)But much more so in the poetry.
And of course what are biscuits without a little butter and honey? Thanks, Annie.
Poetry...language that fills the hunger of the mind and heart for beautiful words with thoughts that can satisfy one's soul...Lovely book, William~~~
Beautiful. Thank you, Jan. We might also say creates the hunger, or is the hunger....
