DAVE MITCHELL'S POETRY
It was most gratifying to read Dave's comment on the subject of translation. Dave translates Russian scientific stuff for a living, but is also a poet, so he knows a bit about it all! He kindly shared the url of his poetry , which I found to be very moving and well worth a visit. He said we 'bloggers' are welcome to use it, etc., but of course I know that we will all remember to give credit where it's due..
I enjoy doing this blog in and of itself; however, a contribution such as this REALLY makes my day...THANKS,DAVE!
