Edna St. Vincent Millay 1892-1950

This month’s In the News story reminded us of this poem about the simple joys of nature. It was written by Edna St. Vincent Millay, an award-winning American poet from Maine.

You Try It: Millay writes about spending time in a place she loves. Many of her sentences begin with “I will.” Write your own “I will” poem about a place you love. What will you do there? What will you see and enjoy?
