Bad News and Good News

Within a week of re-posting the Poetry Tree welcome notice as well as poems by Linda Pastan and William Wordsworth, all three laminated sheets were gone!  I believe that it’s the wind and the methodology of using nails to attach the sheets to the tree.  The good news is that some very clever poetry-lover attached a Jorie Graham poem (see recent poem updates) to a branch with ribbon and it seems to be doing quite nicely there.  I have today sent an order over the Internet to purchase plastic cables, which I plan to loop around the tree and through the laminated sheets, hopefully solving the problem of severe ‘transient beauty of the arts’ as well as not offending those nature lovers who mistakenly believe that nails harm the tree.  Stay tuned and thanks to the person who sent a  recent ‘thank you’ for the poetry tree.
