The poem uses cookies to store data used by the program code. Your browser must be configured to accept cookies, and you should also disable the warning that prompts you to accept each cookie. (This can be done in Netscape Navigator through the Preferences/Advanced menu.)

Clicking the Begin Poem link below or on the title page will open a new browser window and begin the poem. (If the link isn't visible, this indicates that your browser is incompatible.) The window will lack the usual browser menus and toolbars, which can't be used in this hypertext because of its dynamic nature. Using the browser's backtracking features would cause text to display incorrectly. To exit the poem, close the window displaying it. You can then return to this opening window.

Please report any problems (such as JavaScript error messages) to Robert Kendall. Comments are also welcome.
