TB is spending my internet time tonight checking the results from last week’s Thursday Pickin. We are in Camden, Maine, for a one night stopover in route to Portland for the rest of the week. As we walked through town and around the harbor I spotted a statue of the famous poet Edna St. Vincent Millay, a native of the Camden/Rockport area. I looked her up and found this gem I vaguely recall from a college lit course, and thought I’d pass it along as not only Quote of the Day, but the heart of today’s post.
|by Edna St. Vincent Millay|
My candle burns at both ends; It will not last the night; But ah, my foes, and oh, my friends— It gives a lovely light!
There was also this little gem on the community bulletin board, right on Main Street. I’m betting this lass is a fan of her hometown poet.
You are taking me back to elementary school and Robert Frost in Mrs. Mitchell’s 4th grade class at Beach Elementary. And you know I love the rhymes. The pictures are puzzle worthy and beautiful! I would be interested to know the age of the lady who placed the ad – I noticed she did not give one, but she did place an age group for the man she desired. A possible story is there.
