    The type of people who go to a party and trash historic homes probably do think reading poetry (or reading anything) *is* a form of punishment.

    The elderly gent still had regal fire when he visited a place I was once. His message was much about internal discipline in his writings, though in public his personna was more rounded. Yet, I am glad the prosecutor accepted community service from the illicit attendees at the historic site destruction. Perhaps a few of those youth will discover in their own life a road less traveled and less littered with aluminum can discards.

    I don’t consider reading poetry to be a form of punishment but it is a close second. Regardless, I am not going to trash a home of one of the celebrated poets of the past no matter what I think. Amy
