Shall we offer flowers?

Hearing a poet read his own work adds new dimension to a piece of writing as it allows us to listen to the words and pace of the poem the way the author meant for it to be heard.

Now, hear Schelling---a poet, essayist, and translator---read his previously unpublished poem "Shall we offer flowers?" aloud.

This made my day! I will sleep better thinking of all the flowers I saw while horseback riding in the mountains.
