E. Boland's "Quarantine"
2005-06-30
Added by: Lance Levens
Thanks to E. Boland for reaching deep into our literary history for a near ballade form
for this piece, a verbal sepulchre, hard as marble, to embody that which we do not understand and with God's mercy, we shall never have to endure. This is not the place to step into form squabbles, but surely this poem is proof that Sir Patrick Spens and his ilk
also serve and also stand and wait.
