In the noise and dust of that dark day
When pain and anger mingled.
Where Love was driven on with whips and jeers
shouldering the oppressive burden of a sinful world.

It's been many years, with many spaces in between, and from what I can see Bill has just gotten better and better at this poem stuff. My love to him, and Rosyanne and his son. Long may he wave.

'A Chance Meeting' is as refeshing a poem as I've ever read, and in a very few lines. The poem about the Pettus Bridge in the Selma march gave me a kind of warm chill that reading a poem has never done to me before. I didn't have time to read all of Bill's poems, but I find a warm and observant eye and heart here, that have moved me greatly.
