I think that I shall never see, a poem quite as lovely as a tree.

Destroyed by time, eaten by grubs, the tree surely must be loved.

Speak for yourself, my dear Frizzelle! Brendan Gill is most certainly not forgotten to me.

His biography of Frank Lloyd Wright, "Many Masks," stands as one of the most important, myth-busting works in the extensive canon of not only FLW-centric studies, but in all of architectural scholarship.

And then there's that long, wonderful legacy of The Sky Line.

For what it's worth, last time I visited my dad, he was reading a collection of essays about Brendan Gill by people who'd known and worked with him.
If people are still reading and writing about him, he can't be too utterly forgotten.
