Memorial Service for Bob Hart Saturday 8/30 at 1:30 p.m.














Our dear friend and poet, Bob Hart,  passed away last week.  He was 85 years old, but his lively spirit and dance moves could outdo those more than half his age.  Bob featured for me back on January 5, 2013 with Bruce Weber and Joanne Pagano Weber as part of The No Chance Ensemble team. It was a fun event for everyone.  Bob’s poem, A Longer Shorter Comedy, is in the Brownstone Poets 2014 Anthology.  I plan to do a special memorial section for him in the 2015 anthology.



There will be a non-denominational funeral service for Bob Hart:


Saturday, August 30, at 1:30 p.m.


The Scientology Church


65 East 82 St., between Park and Madison


New York, NY 10028


If you have any questions, please call Eden at 212-288-1526.


I wish I could go, but I’m scheduled to work that day.


Every poem is a gift from the poet’s heart.  Bob Hart had a heart filled with poetry.  I have posted his poem from the Brownstone Poets 2014 Anthology below.  Please read, enjoy, and share his gift.



midway this trip

beginning with one and

ending with another nothing;

bubbling in the wakings of

sensation’s edgy finding of

the light and morbid substance of infinitude

we who met (or not met at all) are amazed

in our urging or purging round this fountain cup

of bright and dim variety

how many (or few) exuding life’s vibrancy

we find in this contriving of eternity

midway my trip or midway our trip

so many steep concavities

of sloping in and climbing out—

the filling of the dark green living leaf

with freezing white (whose eye of ice

will weep a different beauty in the spring)

midway like sun and blossom   hope and help

close with opening we sanctify or vilify each other—


weaving forever as substance sublime

or else a void to avoid.

—Bob Hart
