Kitty If you can HEAR this on tape/CD read by famous Seamus, it's even better!

Robert No doubt. Hass brought him to Berkeley to read back when I was an undergrad. He said the falling Anglo-Saxon rhythms felt somehow natural to his Irish ear. If Val ever has trouble sleeping, I have but to read a few lines from this book. Works without fail to lull her to sleep. Something about those descending lines.
