Great Regulars: From May 3-6, the May Sarton Centennial

will be held in the town of York, where Sarton, one of Maine's most important authors, lived in her "house by the sea." The centennial celebration will include music, commentaries, poetry readings and even a clambake. Details are available at the Sarton 100 website, maysarton100.org. In preparation for the festivities, here's a characteristically vivid and witty poem by the poet herself.

A Parrot

from Wesley McNair: The Portland Press Herald: Take Heart: A Conversation in Poetry
