What did you love?

What did you hear as the fetal being paragraph led to the Brazilian opera singer paragraph, which led to the Osage story paragraph, which led to the final paragraph on listening, all of the paragraphs nesting into one set of ears? What did you feel when you heard the Walt Whitman quote? Where did you find your attention sharpening? What images held you? Where were the ideas most brilliant to your imagination?

Morning hair loves lectures about poetry too.
