    re : Thanks for this site, tailor. I like this kind of pictures. And they're very illustrative of the poem.

    Loved Autumn Orchestra", this poem
    organized like a concert and inscribed to "one beyond the seas".
    "L" comes tomorrow.

    Epigraph translation: from Dante's Inferno

    “If I but thought that my response were made
    to one perhaps returning to the world,
    this tongue of flame would cease to flicker.
    But since, up from these depths, no one has yet
    returned alive, if what I hear is true,
    I answer without fear of being shamed.”

    Enjoyed "Do I dare / Disturb the universe?" Eliot reads his poem: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JAO3QTU4PzY

    Loved the translation of the epigraph.

    As for the rendering, in spite of it being the author himself(and what an author!), I found it a bit monotonous.

    "Damascus",- an all life poem! Wonderful! Put it up in "The Universal Poetry Thread" I opened on another forum.
