For Tony Frazer
Sudden in spring, the cyclamen.
Frost-tender on slopes, amid
boulder and stone, unruly thorns.
Upswept petals not
of hope in the land, but soft-
hued ears alert in the crowned grace
of Ardent listening.
– from Found Lyrics
For Tony, whose ardent listening, devoted attention and hard-work grace
have made our poetic landscape inestimably richer.
In deep gratitude & profound admiration –
