Lew Welch – How many can you find?

 
 
Lewis Barrett Welch, Jr. (August 16, 1926 — May 23, 1971?) was an American poet associated with the Beat generation of poets, artists, and iconoclasts.
 
Welch published and performed widely during the 1960s. He taught a poetry workshop as part of the University of California Extension in San Francisco from 1965 to 1970.
 
On May 23, 1971, he was believed to have committed suicide, after leaving a note. His body was never found. from Wiki

 
 

Step out onto the Planet.
Draw a circle 100 feet round.

Inside the circle are 300 things
nobody understands and,
maybe, nobody’s ever seen.

How many can you find?
