    Sorry, It's a Question

    I don't know where to search: in the late 60's I read a Rod McKuen poem in a magazine. I believe the title was simply "Loving", but am not positive. The only lines I remember are " how much safer to want then to need, people don't expect so much from you then' [sic...
