Focal point:
Christopher Logue, “Come to the Edge”

Christopher Logue. Image source: Faber.co.ukBRITISH POET CHRISTOPHER LOGUE (born 1926) wrote the following verse for a 1968 festival honoring French avant-garde poet Guillaume Apollinaire. I am delighted at the poem's reference to the need for leaders to initiate the process of overcoming barriers that hinder creativity.

Come to the edge.
We might fall.
Come to the edge.
It’s too high!
COME TO THE EDGE!
And they came,
and he pushed,
and they flew.
