Music: Fantasia 5.
By Giovanni Bassano.
Sequenced by Curtis Clark at The Internet Renaissance Band.
|Hear me read the poem:
As a .wav file
As an MP3 file
|Lewis is a symphony of
Embracing much that, shunned, would bring pure pain.
While death and illness, loss and hunger reign,
In him there is a treasuring of treasures:
Simple savoring, sweet-tongued and sane.
