I had been a polar explorer in my youth…

I must share this terrific poem by Mark Strand, as featured on The Writer’s Almanac:

I Had Been a Polar Explorer

I had been a polar explorer in my youth
and spent countless days and nights freezing
in one blank place and then another….

* Many thanks to my bi-polar-photographer pal Stuart Klipper for bringing this poem to my attention!
