june with th'presidents -


he's climbed them all twice
(12-14)





firecracker took his

finger - now he spends his fourths

fishing 'n th'merrimac
(12-14)






down from granite peak
crumbled white mountain king
whose reign has ended
(7-05)



in dartmouth green, old
prof expounds under bright trees,
squirrel hides acorns
(2-10)





leaves on keane roadsides
blow in wind of passing cars,
without their purpose
(10-05)





through-hikers in whites
meet by chance - town of berlin
can't contain their joy
(6-13)






first frost in the whites -
the trail laundry, stuffed in pack -
only maine ahead
(3-10)





through hiker in whites -
somehow stopped seeing colors
't thirty miles a day
(2-14)






seven pumpkins wide,
boxed in by granite - what's this
'live free or die' thing?
(12-11)






on four going west,
's used to portsmouth, but christmas
's back to mastigouche
(12-11)







north church through window,
eggnog clouds his mem'ry - doomed
to repeat hist'ry?
(12-11)






manchester cafe
wag, sees blizzard - 'moved here for
live free or die tags'
(3-10)






ways off th'franklin pierce -

old farmhouse, thirty acres

'f frozen, rocky earth
(11-14)







freezing rain and snow -
union leader's confident
turnout'll break record
(1-12)





lonely stretch of four -
snow on tongue, eyes glaze over
at andover sign
(12-11)






dartmouth scholar's tale -
verdant valley's flowers bloom,
plato collects dust
(2-14)





one moment 'n portsmouth -

around th'corner, and in th'sun,

(11-14)




u n h tassel -
relatives and friends toast her,
she yearns for the whites
(12-11)
