    Karma Tenzing did, also, a run of &quot;frog poems&quot; a-while back… (I got the original hand done version around here somewhere.<br />not only do &quot;we&quot; (who do) go through a thousand<br /><br />visions-and-revisions-&amp;-variations on a theme <br />but (in my case) every poem/drawing has taken 71 + years to &quot;get<br />here&quot;<br />only to be glanced at for 14.37 seconds <br
