  1. lovely. thanks for posting.

    • It is good, isn’t it? When I was young(er), Birney was one of the greats. I once saw him read in Montreal. He was elderly then, but he had recently broken his arm falling out of a tree he was climbing. He also wrote a terrific novel.

  2. I never loose sight or tire of this beautiful poem. It stays with me from early years as a student studying Philosophy and Studio Art in Kingston. Birney paints a magnificent work of art illuminating man’s predicament. Thank you for revisiting this jewel.
