“The question, O me! so sad, recurring — What good amid these, O me, O life?
That you are here — that life exists and identity,
That the powerful play goes on, and you may contribute a verse.”
“O Me! O Life!” by Walt Whitman
I can think of no other statement so profound, so inspirational.
What will your verse be?
Thinking of Robin Williams. I could barely sleep last night. What a talent . . . what a terrible loss.

I was shocked, too! So incredibly heartbreaking…

Not just to poets, but for all who needed encouragement releasing their inner yawp.
One of my favorite poems, and ever so fitting for him. Such a brilliant, talented man. So tragic.
Totally agree. It is such a tragedy. I will miss him!!
