I don't usually mention one: I don't usually mention one of my poems in someone's comment section, as it can appear to be self-promoting, but I cannot, as is my customary habit, send you a PM about this.  Your poem has inspired one of my own, entitled "Christmas And Easter Gifts," which I have justed posted; and I have acknowledged the inspiration in a headnote to my poem.  Thank you for your great poem, which evoked the most precious childhood memories for me.

Thank you for the: Thank you for the compliment.  It is so ironic that, between 1976 and 1980, while reading Milton, Eliot, Vergil, and Stevens, I always wondered what it would be like to watch, to witness, the ongoing development of such greatness, to see that greatness putting itself together in the flow of time.  And now, in my old age, when I can really appreciate it, I am seeing exactly that process---in and through your poems.
