My Year of Research

The Danish Noblewoman in Hamlet, Ophelia. Artist: Sir John Everett Millais, completed in 1851 / 1852.

Perhaps it is my year of research, and in
the privilege of my hibernation—

of laying down roots in my own dry Earth —

in a room of one’s own,
in Spencertown, America.

And perhaps the Fall will come,
and we’ll head indoors where it’s warm.
