Now about, "What Dante Learned,"  My poem is about life's lesson's learned as told from Dante's point of view in the poem Dante's Inferno by Dante Alighieri, Dante is sent on a journey through hell by poet Virgil. Typical of hell, you get there through loss of spiritual values. Pretty basic heaven and hell stuff---and many of us an relate to the loss of spiritual values. 

HERE IT IS....but buy the rest of this wonderful issue using the link provided above.
