It is good to see the word indolent used.

I'm only just now reading the poem. Sometimes I'm so focused on formatting that I don't pay much attention to the words. As a poem it makes me wish I could read the original--both translations sort of sound like translations. I like elements of both but Baring's last line is *way* better, and to my thinking more appropriate, though obviously I have no idea which is more accurate.

Reading what I take to be a more or less literal translation on that second video is interesting. Certainly makes the others sound better.

Here's Janet's piece about the Maurice Baring book:

Thanks. When I red through the post this morning, I thought about asking you to add that link. I really enjoyed that book.
