Re: London: Understanding One Another, Saturday 18 July

I wrote the poem recently, from experience, and not to celebrate the debate at the Mary Ward centre, but your right, a poem can have different resonance, depending on delivery method, accent, location,timing etc. ... perhaps we try to understand one another for advantage, but, have to contend with t...
