Song ("The weight of the world is love")




We've been wanting to post this one for a while - and today's the perfect day. From Jerry Aronson's absolutely-definitive DVD , The Life and Times of Allen Ginsberg (and posted here with his generosity and permission), Allen's extraordinarily-moving 1992 recitation of his poem,"Song" - "The weight of the world is love" - It is indeed. Happy Valentine's Day!




and as an added little bonus (it being the Burroughs' Centennial):

  1. What a joy to hear this poem read aloud (the week of reading aloud). Thank you AGP for this Valentine.
