I wish I had the means
to give all the north back to itself, to let the pines
rise in the hayfield and the lilacs go wild.
But then where would we live?
from Hartley Field by Connie Wanek
Few things, perhaps, go so well with a walk in the woods as poetry.
The Robert Frost Interpretive Trail in Vermont is a perfect example. In fact, it served as the inspiration for the Connie Wanek Wildflower Trail at Hartley Park, due to be dedicated August 26 by Duluth Poet Laureate Ellie Schoenfeld.
