    Poem Commentary

    For Uncle Edgar and Aunt Virginia Rest Well.

    Edgar Dear Edgar

    Edgar, Dear Edgar
    do you sleep as soundly as she.

    Edgar, Dear Edgar
    awaken and see, what legacy you left this world.

    Edgar, Dear Edgar
    resting there next to Virginia E.

    Edgar, Dear Edgar
    can the raven knock on thee.

    Edgar, Dear Edgar
    speak of hardship I'll listen through time.

    Edgar, Dear Edgar
    can your heart still rhyme.

    Edgar, Dear Edgar
    oh my heart aches for you Uncle of mine.

    Edgar, Dear Edgar
    your line did prevail.

    Edgar, Dear Edgar
    can you hear your dead speak.

    Edgar, Dear Edgar
    you set this nephew square upon his feet.

    Edgar, Dear Edgar
    with your quill and ink used by my hand.

    Edgar, Dear Edgar
    did writting come easy as it does for me.

    Edgar, Dear Edgar
    rest with the knowledge your family has pride.

    Edgar, Dear Edgar
    some of your ancestors continue to rhyme.

    thanks man I'll try to read yours sometime today.....

    Poetry is not an expression of the party line. It's that time of night, lying in bed, thinking what you really think, making the private world public, that's what the poet does.

    Allen Ginsberg (1926-1997) U.S. poet.
