    Wow. "Beyond the protest"–beyond our [temporary] concerns and outrages, the beauty we may miss, as well as the indifference to our concerns and outrages….What a powerful poem.

    Hi 'Edward'

    Another beauty:

    beyond the protest
    willow limbs
    shifting with the breeze

    I remember this so well, and that stunning first line that resonates throughout the next two lines and long after I've read the poem.

    It's stunningly original and forever topical.

    warm regards,

    Alan
