  •  I enjoyed the three Orr poems you linked to, (3+ / 0-)

    and agree about
    "savoring the beauty of the art,
    and savoring life in general,
    as revealed with the help of art."

    Thanks for showing me beauty I had not seen.

      I truly feel that,
      just as Noam Chomsky pointed out
      that language,
      our general rules of grammar,
      is hard wired into the human brain,
      likewise,
      other things,
      such as government
      and poetry
      are simply the nature of the beast,
      the beast being our species of ape.

      Houses,
      poetry,
      government,
      language.

      The nature of the beast.

      Thanks again.
