Poetry break

This is totally off-subject, but here is a link to a story I wrote about Donald Hall, the Wilmot poet, for this month's New Hampshire Magazine.

Flickr has many of the pictures David Mendelsohn shot of Hall for the piece. You can view those here. That's David's portrait of Don at left.

As far as I know, Don doesn't have any poems about the Civil War, but his late wife Jane Kenyon wrote one. It is  titled "Gettysburg: July 1, 1863," and I had the privilege of reading it at a memorial service for Jane many years ago.
