National Poetry Month/John Greenleaf Whittier
I am thinking today of poet John Greenleaf Whittier as we mark the 150th anniversary of the start of the Civil War. While I focused on his nature poetry when I did this installation at Maudslay State Park, much of his poetry was in support of the abolitionist movement.
