Majestic, moving and so: Majestic, moving and so quotable I sensed a timeless quality and great power as I read it, then I wanted to read it again. There's such elation in the thought that no earthly slander "tarnishes your crown / in Heaven; so do not be loathe to pull those pillars down."   Yes! I could hear angelic voices and an orchestra of light. This shines.

At class reunions, people: At class reunions, people should sign each others' yearbooks with this poem.  In a few short lines, and a very conversational style, you address past, present and future; you address problems that are similtaneously political, social, and personal; and you demonstrate the art of empathy at which we could all (especially myself) could do better at.  This is one of the most important poems I have ever read at postpoems; but, even moreso, in my nearly forty-eight years (as of this coming spring) of reading poetry, this is one of the most personally important poems I have ever read.  This poem does exactly what Dante and John Milton thought that real poetry did---it conveys both verbal beauty and practical wisdom.  And though the remembering, in the poem, is done in the first person singular, the events remembered are described in the first person plural, using the simple word, "we."  In the last four years, our society has shifted from "We" to "I" and we have forgotten that there is no "i" in "us" or in the abbreviation of our nation's name, U.S.  We must remember that Innkeeper Trump is and has been a real estate invenstor; and investing for profit (and investing has an "I" as its initial letter) has always been more about enriching the "I" rather than sharing with "We/Us" while, very often, attempting to subtract the "We" from "Us" and banishing it to "Them" so that "Us" can be against "Them" as in the many divisions that the Innkeeper has caused to this nation.   Your poem is a beautiful, salutary, artistic, skillful and poignant antidote to the attitude that the Innkeeper has promoted among us.

The poem is full of beautiful: The poem is full of beautiful imagery, conveyed in a very unique tone, but those last two lines are supremely and beautifully joyous, and resonate long after the poem has been read.  I applaud this great accomplishment.  I think the last two lines belong in every library's quotation book.

Humorous Relief: I resort to laughter when life gets ridiculous, unanticipated, or just wrong. I have to come at items sdewise to keep from screamng and using bad language or too poignant rhetoric.

State of Mind: . Freedom, a dream for millions earth-wide, to eat, to remain alive. To see peace in a flower petal or find flight in a restng robin or gull. Out among friends or with new acquaintences temporarily blocked, reading and writing broad spectrm topics is a path to freedom too. The Donnie will be free in 11 days. And so will we. :D
