The Abnormal Is Not Courage - Poem by Jack Gilbert

The Poles rode out from Warsaw against the German
Tanks on horses. Rode knowing, in sunlight, with sabers,
A magnitude of beauty that allows me no peace.

    But I say courage is not the abnormal.
    Not the marvelous act.

    excel of writings

    but what is abnormalities!
    O no- that's not courage!
    Different head holder in bold!
    or blind in doing anything!
    or confidential insanity of time!
    O the courageous! the brave heart!
    for what you're crazy!
    not in imbalanced thinking!
    right path before your eyesight- DO or DIE!

    Oh the madness ravishes me here, there and everywhere! ! ! ! ! ! ! !
