The Methow River Poems. The other, "A Valley Like This," also by Stafford, is from the same collection.
But these two are only part of a group of seven of Stafford's poems posted at locations along the river. Apparently, they were commissioned by the Forestry Service in 1993. I've yet to find the others, but plan to seek them out next time we visit the Cascade Loop.
Poetry seemed to be in the air, as even the rangers' station encouraged visitors to create poems of their own.
The display was simple -- just a sign which included the reminder that Gary Snyder and Jack Kerouac (and I'm pretty sure, Jack Spicer and Sam Hamill) found inspiration from time living in the woods.
Beside the sign was a table with some cutouts of 'foresty' words, but what a delight to find them.
And me, of course I'm wishing more of such public poetry would show up around here. There are some small haiku-like writings on rocks at nearby Blackie Spit at Crescent Beach, so I suppose I should be content.
