Thank you, Michael, for this excellent appreciation.

This is a wonderfully written and Great testament to a
Man who was a true gift to art and literature !

Hello Michael--lovely..

Hi Michael,

Simply a sublime piece of writing on Lawrence Ferlinghetti's work. Thank you Thank you. Gerard.

Exquisite tribute, Michael - you certainly captured the complexity and depth of his spirit. I lived some years in SF- right around the corner from City Lights, my favorite haunt. Often saw Ferlinghetti at a quiet North Beach cafe we both frequented. Grateful for his legacy, and for YOU who do so much to keep the Spirit of Poetry alive. Mille Grazie- B. Amore

Thank you, Michael, for this literary obit. It is lovely.

A wonderful window into an amazing poet and man. You did him justice. Bravo. Louisa

Hi Michael, It was wonderful to read this article, so beautifully written. It's been far too long since I've communicated with you. Hopefully I'll see you at the next reunion. John Petrillo
