  • I loved your words, Benjamin.
    Especially the last stanza,
    Images so close to my young heart
    Of words trembling like the legs of a newborn foal,
    A foal that quickly finds its balance and,
    After finding sustenance from its mother,
    Soon leaps about and flies straight and true
    Across the greening pasture, ready for life.
    Your words are beautiful, Benjamin Weinberg!
