    "I began to write poems back to Han Shan in the margins of the book." And then Lenfestey's life moved on; he took a job at the Star Tribune.

His poems, of course, do not belong to the School of Poetic Laws but to that of Naturalism and Spiritualism. He himself also confessed that he neglected those Poetic Laws, as is said in his poem.
