33 Lines For Ginsberg
Beatiest of beats let me address you
as you America. Let me bless you
charleychaplin poet that you are
like Ferlinghetti spreadeagled in air
Ringo's Song [beatles]
I am not the great John, bold and zany,
many-talented, a fun man, brainy,
brought up in Liverpool, shot in New York
before he had properly finished his work.
Frost locks the landscape under sun,
silvers the gold of autumn,
deepens hollows in the fields,
sharpens shadows on the mountainsides,
Whitby Jet
Black stone soft to carve
beads, ornament, brooches.
Stone, fine and intricate,
to wear, to revel in,
Gently The Woodsorrel And The Dove
Gently the woodsorrel and the dove
evoked wide glades of memory
to share my quest across the sea,
a world-floor I could float above,

How good to be sent 33 Lines For Ginsberg on Christmas Eve... with its echoes and resonances of the sixties and the poets I was exploring then, Ginsberg yes and people like Lawrence Ferlinghetti and Denise Levertov... Strength to your pen.
