One Sunday afternoon
I had an idea....
             From —An American Boyhood
                      by Jonathan Holden






Poets are athletes of the mind; but the performances they put on do not take place in stadiums or on television. The performances take place in books, and the quality of the performance depends almost wholly upon the existence of an educated and willing reader; for the art of poetry is pre­eminently an art of reading.

Jonathan Holden
