ditto From: lit-ideas-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:lit-ideas-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of Robert Paul Sent: 26 February 2015 02:53 To: lit-ideas@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [lit-ideas] Prince Otsu before his execution The whole poem is excellent, Lawrence, but this last stanza is superb —Robert. Prince Otsu experienced fleeting Glimpses of what he would miss. Alas, it wouldn’t have been as he Imagined even if his executioners Never Arrived and even if he lived to eighty. He would merely sit by a fire and fail to recall Much of whatever it turned out to have been. ——————————————————————— '...saw fleeting glimpses...,' maybe, but who's counting?
