    Bernard, I am a poet myself, and I enjoyed your poems, they remind me of Yates and Heaney, but in a more Christian way. I have often had an idea to write a study of Catholic poetry. I often think we have lost a tradition that included both Dante and in Modern times Gerard Manly Hopkins. Your work is like a bridge. I would love to hear your response to this

    Short, spare, arresting piece with plenty of word magic. (Walker) Superb, in my opinion.

St. Agnes' day

it was colder yet, the day after,
though years later, from the Eve.
The mice, early move through
the back rooms, on kitchen floor, tip toe.
The windows iced over, and the frosted free
car glass windows, take their engine time
to clear.
And I cannot find my Keats compilation,
with Lamia, Isabella, and
