Three Commentaries on Poetry: To understand some poetry, or poets, one must have experienced what the poet has-identical experiences; or you must be shaped like the poet-, the exceptions are from the old school of poetry-one shoe fits all (thus, understanding the theme, plot and insight of poetry becomes much easier); from the contemporary scene, you must have the same shoe size of the poet to understand where the poet is leading you, and in poetry the poet should have a destination for the reader-lest he doesn't care (and he should).

Love and its attendant passions has been the favorite subject of Spanish poetry since the time of the troubadours, medieval poets who earned their keep by singing for the people at the village square or for the nobility during royal gatherings at the palace.

Here is a poem on the Satipo Jungle of Peru, we have some land in the jungle, and it is about 300-miles from the Andes, from Hauncayo, Peru, where Dennis will be going in March. He will go back for the 9th time to Peru, to the Andes, spend some time in Satipo, and then back to Lima, and then perhaps to Spain, where he was back in l997; I have been to Europe a number of times, but not to Spain, so this will be great, if we do really go, he is also talking about the Falklands, so who knows. But I'd go anywhere, anytime anyplace with him, he is one big adventure, no matter where he's at. So please enjoy his poem, I did. It is in three parts, but you do not have to wait for them,they are all here.
