    Amazing! ! ! One the greatest poems of all time with profound wisdom of forgiveness and the result of not showing it. For we shall love and forgive not only our friends, but our foes as Christ commands. It is the way of true love. Thanks (Report) Reply

    The poet is lucky that his wreath didn't destroy him, instead killed only his foe! Enjoyed the poem. (Report) Reply
