    I specially love that part of "To Victor Hugo...":
    "I know not–England, France, all man to be
    Will make one people ere man’s race be run:
    And I, desiring that diviner day,
    Yield thee full thanks for thy full courtesy
    To younger England in the boy my son."

    re: To Victor Hugo - yes, quite moving.

    re: Beggarly Heart - "When desire blinds the mind with delusion and dust, O thou holy one,
    thou wakeful, come with thy light and thy thunder"... incredible. Rabindranath Tagore won a Nobel Prize for Literature and so many more accomplishments.

    Re: Wow! American Letter is an impressive poem. I like it much better than the later poem. Enjoyed meeting this poet:https://en.wikipedia.org/wikihttps:/...ibald_MacLeish

    Beyond A delicate poem. The poet is only just now overshadowed by Archibald MacLeish.

    Delightful poem Found this:
    The entire poem is in movement, like water. It ripples. It reflects. It is prismatic. It flows. The second
    stanza is like the ripples created by the "small glowing pebbles" being thrown on the water. The first line of
    this second stanza is a throw. The reader can hear the pebbles hit. Plink, plink, plink, plink; this is the
    tetrameter of line two in the second stanza. And the meaning follows in much the same way. "Good ballads of God" are an inner ripple of the larger concept "eternity with souls rest." Then, plink, "little priests," and plink,
    "little holy fathers," both fall into the widening circle of "the truth of your hymning." Then perspective is shattered like water when a wind suddenly sweeps all ripples away, as the bells come, in "songs of carmine, violet, green, gold."

    Thanks for the link! Very interesting analysis of Each "Each Small Gleam Was a Voice". I didnīt notice that the title itself suggests a relationship between visual aspect and sound.

    Enjoyed very much. There's a Native American/Indigenous/Nations aesthetic here amongst the poets in the Gold Country that I have yet to fully appreciate. An acquaintance of mine, Stephen Meadows, fills that niche very nicely, whom I consider The Poet in Garden Valley: https://www.mtdemocrat.com/prospecti...ational-words/ (I am but a poet in Garden Valley, one of many). He has been published with his latest book just recently released

    Hoping this isn't a duplicate:

    Ever tried to present a selection of poems for publication in Garden Valley (as there seems to be that possibility there)?

    Liked the cummings poem, La Guerre II.... He makes one think.

    Lol... There are about 12,326,000 more people in S.P. than G.V. as of 2020, so not too many prospects I know of locally. I have neither the background (demographic/education/contacts) nor works most publications might desire.

    I've promised myself for years I'd try self publishing... either through Amazon eBooks or P.O.D. press. I even have a nearly finished product from my earlier poetry that I printed and loose-bound for my Daughter and each of my three Grand-children for Christmas presents a few years back that are gathering dust in closets (they're really not into reading poetry much). After reading a few poems that I thought my oldest Grandson would be amused with I gifted him with two framed glossy prints this year of two poems I wrote in the Nonsense Poetry thread having rock themes, the poems you may recall, that he enjoyed and actually hung in his house. And that's about it - not including my latest procrastinated gift for my artist Sister of an updated manuscript, yet to finish and send off.

    Perhaps our Thursday at Two group may help. It is held in the library in Georgetown up here on the Divide; population about 3000, or 1500 less than G.V. which is a surprise - I'd bet there are more than enough backwoods hideaways in the hills to make up the difference and more though. Our poetry group has introduced me to published poetry authors. My aesthetics need a tremendous amount of work (my poetry is too tongue in cheek for most tastes), which is why I like our poetry group; though small it is eclectic in scope... and I get invited to poetry readings and open microphone/open forum opportunities (participated in three) on occasion, and I'm learning a lot... also, still trying to get out of my shell (blush).

    Delightful poem

    Well, itīs just because you belong to a much smaller community than I, that I think it can be easier to be known and publish text . Iīm surprised, by the way, that Georgetown is smaller than Garden Valley. In Brasil you need good contacts to publish something and you have to be mediatic which today probably means that you must appear on TV or have your own influencer channel on You Tube or (you or your cat) millions of followers on Instagram).

    I am not so familiar with poetry but I think yours has an own face. I think what you need are good contacts through your poetry group or your church. Or, I remember, Yes/ No found out about several Nano stories groups on line, and started sending his stories. I think there must be similar poetry groups on line, one must only be careful with those groups, who make a business out of it, offering to publish ones poems in collections, on cups, certificates, tombstones or whatever. You already have a collection which probably needs just some dusting up and updating. And getting out of the shell (Ai!)

    "Walking To The Mail..." a very gossipy poem . Poor Niobe of swine!!
