For AJ - (Elizabeth Bishop) "Chemin de Fer" Poem No 9/1,080 #pursuitofeverythinggift

No 9 of 1,080

On the evening the ParaOlympics opened in London - "Chemin de Fer" by #ElizabethBishop (American 1911-79) is the chosen gift for AJ Leon - the misfit nomad who's showing it can be done.

You hear the poem read twice - you hear me make a crazy error & show how distracted a reader I can be.

The poem may appeal to AJ @ajleon because he recently crossed America in a train by #Amtrak:

"Love should be put into action" - what a shout eh!
