Your words comfort
Across the divide of
Time- space and race;
You lived in isolation,
I am Nobody! Who are you?
Are you- Nobody- too?
Then there is a pair of us!
That is what you said in
One of your famous poems
That might shock today’s narcissists
Poets and all others that revere
Yet, living and dying un-loved,
Your poetic soul was incredibly rich,
And included the whole universe in it
Like that other distinguished voice,
Walt Whitman, your peer,
And both of you
Spoke about us,
And still speak to us,
Although the world hardly listens
To its own great masters .
