Artist's Description

*Through the mist and through the trees,
curtains of yellow’d oak leading to a carpet
dappled hues of rust and leaves.
The east passage of Narrgansett Bay breaks
the pattern, it beckons us to consider below…
Middlebridge, and my sister there nursing new baby.
Jamestown Island across the waterway, a small
summer cottage there, and a sister packing,
her babies, like mine are now grown.
The Newport bridge connects the islands beyond
a west passage of the bay, the distant horizon
faintly reveals Aquidneck ( Island )…
once controlled by the Great Sachem Massasoit.
Imagine the once bountiful hunting grounds,
home of Wampanoags centuries past and past and past…
Another sister is recouping there in Middletown,
Rhode Island so small, so beautiful, weather so
quick to change, so New England, so coastal wet.
Wherea from a tower your family scattered in one view.
Today the sun hides, November rain is on the way
Our oceanside and bay a subtle lush landscape
