    I must admit I have long known the name Gary Snyder but I have never known his poems. I was surprised to learn that he and Wendell Berry are friends and have been loyal correspondents for nearly fifty years. So I decided to check him out. This is the first poem of his that I read, and I see why they are friends. Snyder will be added to my long, long list of poets that interest me, maybe even to the diverse company of my favorite poets. (Report) Reply

    this poem seems funny. but not so. It has deep undertones of what life forces on one so inevitably.
    Great poem

    One of Snyder's finest funny poems: this one shows that a good ear is an essential part of recognizing poetry. (Report) Reply
