i like gary snyder's smiling face   i

like that kerouac called him japhy ryder 

he's my cup of tea   a gnomish monk

one minute   a madman the next   

they're both boy/men given to larks

they do have fun   and they can write

like no one else   channeling that boy/man

into   living   childish   joy   and since

we can't go dancing   i'm finding joy elsewhere

I was reading about the Beats and how they took Synder as their guiding star this morning. Your poems make more sense to me now. Feels like a fitting tribute to Synder.

Very appealing!
