"...the body and soul of a poem are one."
My friend Jeff Sypeck is an ambitious man. He recently attempted to translate a 9th Century poem
from its original Latin into English, in a single day.
Because the poem is only 10 lines long and grammatically compact, I made the same careless assumption as the day I broke ground in my garden: "How hard can this be?"
In one word: hard. Still, I greatly admire the effort.
