ā€œnot moreā€ said once

So sorry to miss the rest of this session. I always enjoy our conversations but must meet my daughter in the city. See you Thursday. Thank you for great teaching and community
Ed Grossman
01:55:14
But the "notmoreā€¦" is the last word (and in the 2nd line) and gets repeated in the song-version (as if it were a type of modest chorus).

Ed Grossman

In the last version, it says the "song" (or read "poem") that always ends suddenly, and this poem/song also ends suddenly (with "nothing more")..
Ed Grossman
02:16:30
In the last stanza of the final poem ...
Jan Yaffe
02:17:04
and that is the essence at the end of our daysā€¦did we love and were we loved.
Mona Fishbane
02:17:46
We canā€™t control how we will be remembered or how our legacy will evolve.
