Wales Visitation

on this blog I have mentioned Allen Ginsberg's trip (I use the term advisedly) to Capel-y-Ffin, in 1967. It was there that the Beat poet-turned-hippie guru ingested LSD and under its influence wrote the poem: Wales Visitation. In this YouTube he reads it out on American telly.

*Note: this poem is sometimes referred to as Wales, A Visitation.
