Frank Stanford

Farewell


Is a word
That must be
Like a sword
That has worn out
The scabbard

This is an amazing poem for so many reasons, most obvious of all word-sword-worn...

thanks for this one!

Sam, I just found your "notebook" and I am so glad I did.

I use my Live Journal as a creative journal, but with security that only allows my LJ friends to read and comment.

I'll be reading...
