I appreciated your citation of Riley. "When I was a lad" many, many years ago in Indiana an elderly portly gentleman dressed in a black suit and tie would come to schools ocassionally to recite Riley's poetry (not including the one you cited). His deep voice and delivery were precisely the way I would have imagined Riley himself delivering the works. You bring back fond memories. Incidentally, I agree with you.
