A new addition to the Scott and Hella McVay Poetry Trail, “Garden” by Pulitzer Prize-winning poet C.K. Williams (1936-2015), has been dedicated. Published in the collection Vigil (1997), the poem was written from le Parc de Bagatelle, in Neuilly, France, but the place “whose serenity lifts and enfolds me, as a swirl of breeze lifts the leaves and enfolds them” could also describe the trail that begins behind D&R Greenway Land Trust’s Johnson Education Center off Rosedale Road. more
