The Letter is F, for Robert Frost
The Flower Boat
The fisherman's swapping a yarn for a yarn
Under the hand of the village barber,
And there in the angle of house and barn
His deep sea dory has found a harbor.
At anchor she rides the sunny sod
As full to the gunnel of flowers growing
As ever she turned her home with cod
From George's bank when winds were blowing.
And I judge from that elysian freight
That all they ask is rougher weather,
And dory and master will sail by fate
To seek the Happy Isles together.
For more happy F's sail on over to ABC Wednesday here, with thanks
to Denise, to Roger and to all Fair helpers.
