    Loved the beginning! Starts with a container, and it tells that there is more then just that. It has great thought and detail! Love it.<br /><br /><br />Please follow<br />-Brianna

    Thanks for the excellent comments. And Lyle, thanks for reminding me of Levertov&#39;s introduction. I have the book but haven&#39;t gone back to it recently; now I will!

    I&#39;ve liked Guillevic&#39;s poetry for a long time. I first read him sometime in the 1970&#39;s in a Selected Poems, translated by Denise Levertov, published in a bilingual edition by New Directions. I don&#39;t think it&#39;s in print now though could be wrong.<br /><br />I like the absolute spare quality of his poems, the bare thin wire quality.<br /><br />I recall from Levertov&#39;s

    The &quot;I carry on<br />Weighing up the apple&quot; verse is priceless!
