    If Edgar Bowers' art in writing poetry is neglected, it indicts the sinking art of reading poetry.

    Another giant, lost in virtual anonymity, but canonical just the same. Great lyrical poetry here, almost on par with Stevens. A joy to read him.

Amor Vincit Omnia

Love is no more.
It died as the mind dies: the pure desire
Relinquishing the blissful form it wore,
The ample joy and clarity expire.

Regret is vain.
Then do not grieve for what you would efface,
The sudden failure of the past, the pain
Of its unwilling change, and the disgrace.
