    If you’re not a regular visit to Leonard’s site, you might want to check it out. His posts of poems by Tang and Sung dynasty Chinese poets started me down a very important path as a reader and a writer. His own work, such as the poem here, are wonderfully evolved mechanisms of concision that you don’t even realize have gotten into your head until suddenly a thought of your own blooms, seemingly out of nowhere, and you realize it grew from one of his poems. This poem is a great example of that. You will remember this, hours or days or years from now.
