recite to Agim. He was very sweet-tongued! He taught his son how to make
verse, in poetry, revealing to him its 'secrets'. Sometimes though, Agim
failed in creating verse and remained a writer of proser; prosing and writing
short stories. Later, poems and prose became his hobby and have remained
so for the rest of his life. Agim has published his articles in Albanian
newspapers and mass-media. Although he liked the publicity, he was not

book to date. He was wary of any persecution from the Communist regime.

He came to America, on May 22nd,1995, through
