on your skin again.
You know what Bach means
in his composition
'the Joy Of Man's Desiring, ”

Dear Doren, I'm re and re-reading this poem to glean its pleasure, and I'm simultaneously liking what I feel while feeling disconnected. I'm undoubtedly ignorant in so many ways, and I want to know what that second stanza means or is meant to portray-that is, I don't know Crane Hart's work beyond the obvious, and when you propose the part about human personality I get lost. Can you clue me in? Phillip
