Summary:
Lyric verse, including the long poem, "The gift outright", read by the poet at President Kennedy's inauguration.
Contents:
Pod of the milkweed
Away!
Cabin in the clearing
Closed for good
America is hard to see
One more brevity
Escapist-never
For John F. Kennedy his Inauguration
Cluster of Faith: Accidentally on purpose
Never naught song
Version
Concept self-conceived
Forgive, O Lord
Kitty Hawk
Auspex
Draft horse
Ends
Peril of hope
Questioning faces
Does no one at all ever feel this way in the least?
Bad island-Easter
Our doom to bloom
Objection to being stepped on
A-wishing well
How hard it is to keep from being king when it's in you and in the situation
Lines written in dejection on the eve of great success
Milky Way is a cowpath
Some science fiction
Quandary: Quandary
Reflex
In a glass of cider
From iron
Four-room shack aspiring high
But outer space
On being chosen poet of Vermont
We vainly wrestle with the blind belief
It takes all sorts of in and outdoor schooling
In winter in the woods alone.
