This is the poem "Fear", by Hart Crane... REALNEO poet of the day. I became aware of early 20th Century NEO poet Hart Crane from visiting a major local artwork, by Gene Kangas, fabricated in Crane's memory and installed along the banks of the Cuyahoga, in a very fitting, desolate site... learn more about this work here.. As Kangas' work raised my curiosity, I explored the life of Crane and his work and was thoroughly awed. His life was short and tragic, in many ways, but his poetry is fantastic. Visit the following biography to learn more about Crane, and read a more personal perspective at this site. I've posted another of his works below, and more can be found here, and by searching for his name on-line.
