Ruth Stone

Ruth Stone's daughter, Phoebe, and I were fellow students at The Mountain School. So I'm delighted to learn that her mother has been named poet laureate of Vermont. Listen to Ruth Stone talk about her life and poetry here.

In the Next Galaxy

Things will be different.
No one will lose their sight,
their hearing, their gallbladder.
It will be all Catskills with brand
new wrap-around verandas.
The idea of Hitler will not
have vibrated yet.
While back here,
they are still cleaning out
pockets of wrinkled
Nazis hiding in Argentina.
But in the next galaxy,
certain planets will have true
blue skies and drinking water.

-- Ruth Stone
