Just found you answering Doreen's post. Now, I have read this twice-amazed you can hold breath so long if each stanza is a 50-meter lap. Some of your vocabulary slipped through my brain's fingers, but most made your heart chase mine. jim

Hello, jt - This is certainly an unexpectation, no less great; the poem, of course, was composed for the 4th. past, & as I reside in Fla., swimming is a forte, helps with the endurance to maintain breath, as you've noted, through the 50m. stanzas. So, thank you for this gracious attention, chase-on, rage-on, we've much to do... & pleased to bestow upon to you the honor of "1st. (possibly only) Responder" (spread the word) - H'H.
