    ha ha if only 🙂 I had to delete ‘from the dust’ – a little superfluous I think

  10. “If I had written into my poetry half of what people read into it, it would have taken twice as long to write half as much.”

    I’m not sure who — if anyone — said that. I’ve been attributing it to Frost, possibly erroneously for years, because I can find it anywhere else.

    In any case, the most important author of any particular poem is the person reading it, in the moment they read it. 😉

    Which brings to mind a young musical prodigy, known for his interpretations of Mozart’s piano pieces. Can’t remember his name, but he said something like: “There is always more to be discovered in a piece of music. The composer finds a lot of it. But people who follow can always find more. The music wants to be found.”
