Vermont Throws Itself Together

Filed under: General — Tags: — m759 @ 7:00 PM

"The way, when we climb a mountain,
  Vermont throws itself together"

— Wallace Stevens, "July Mountain"

For another view of reality in New Haven, see the
brief biography of Vermont poet Frances Frost
at the Yale University Library.  From that biography:

"She was survived by her son, the poet Paul Blackburn,
and by her daughter, Sister Marguerite of the Order
of St. Joseph
."

online on Epiphany, 2013:

Necessary Angel

Old Stone-Cutter

His gravestones are his everlasting children.
He loves to get his cramped left hand around
the solid faithful feeling of his chisel
and dig the names of those below the ground

or the family names of provident ones above
who cross their fingers and defy the fates
and acknowledge death their enemy and master
by ordering headstones with their birthing dates.

He carves his holy head, a solemn cherub
with granite wings and childish eyes cast down.
Those who prefer a willowed urn, disliking
angels, can go and die in another town.

FRANCES FROST
