General poetry reading is not my forte, but I am often "stopped" by particular poems. I became aware of "Listening" through the choral composition "You Are the Music" by Dan Forrest. Since in my own life experience I have often struggled with the same seeming dichotomy of the music and the song (Marshall Macluhan to the contrary notwithstanding), I could not help being arrested by the music, first, and then the poem. For me, it is a notable marriage.
