Listed below are links to weblogs that reference "Among My Souvenirs" [by David Lehman]:


Frederic March is under-appreciated as an actor these days, I think. In "Inherit the Wind," he was amazing. Compare a picture of him from the movie and a picture of William Jennings Bryan. He was great as an exuberant, overwhelming, and big-hearted Robert Browning in "The Barretts of Wimpole Street;" scary as hell in "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde." And quite wonderful in "Best Years," especially in how the brutality his character has seen and perhaps participated in runs just under the surface and torments him as he tries to readjust to civilian life. I'd watch a Frederic March movie any day.

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
