by Amy Lowell,
Giclee Print

Sea Shell, Sea Shell,
Sing me a song, O Please!
A song of ships, and sailor men,
And parrots, and tropical trees,
Of islands lost in the Spanish Main
Which no man ever may find again,
Of fishes and corals under the waves,
And seahorses stabled in great green caves.
Sea Shell, Sea Shell,
Sing of the things you know so well.

Edna St. Vincent Millay
b. 2-22-1892; Rockland, ME

Edna St. Vincent Millay was the first woman to be awarded the Pulitize Prize for Poetry, in 1923. Her most memorable poem is “Renascence” (1912) with the lines ...

“I saw and heard and knew at last
The How and Why of all things, past,
And present, and forevermore.
The Universe, cleft to the core,
Lay open to my probing sense
That, sick’ning, I would fain pluck thence
But could not,—nay! But needs must suck
At the great wound, and could not pluck
My lips away till I had drawn
All venom out.—Ah, fearful pawn!
For my omniscience paid I toll
In infinite remorse of soul.” ...

FYI - Millay's middle name, St. Vincent, was given to remember New York's St. Vincent Hospital, where an uncle had been treated.

She was accused of “Methodist” tendencies for teaching farm children to read because workers who could read would would leave the farms and that would be “fatal to agriculture”.

As a teenager, Toni devoured great novels by writers like Leo Tolstoy and Jane Austen. ...
