Gracious poem by Joseph Harrison. Thank you for posting it, Mary Jo. I am so sorry for the personal loss of your dear friend.

Thank you for this tribute. He was so kind, so brilliant, and so remarkable.

Wonderful poem. I am so sorry for your loss, Mary Jo, and for our loss of Joseph Harrison.

Wonderful poem. I wish I had known him.

Thanks, Mary Jo -- this is beyond lovely. And yes, "incapacitated by laughter": I remember (and treasure) those moments.

What shocking, depressing news. Thank you for this touching remembrance and for posting this beautiful poem.

Beautiful essay. Joe was an incredible friend and mentor. My husband Morri Creech will miss him dearly.

Thank you for this elegant tribute

I heard him read once and found him a terrific entertainer. I am sorry for his loss to our poetry.
