As Crosby, Stills and Nash once sang, “The ones you never notice are the ones you have to watch.” The rest of the lyrics are juicer, but go off track for what I’m trying to say today.
Here’s poem for you to ignore the loud noises of megaphones and tweets and TV camera hogs and whores.
by Witter Brynner
O, there were lights and laughter
And motions to and fro
Of people as they enter
And people as they go. . . .
And there were many voices
Vying at the feast,
But mostly I remember
Yours — who spoke the least.
