Moonlight spilled on green grass
outside the Blue Room
where poetry was being read
to a small audience.

Sounds of revelry,
bursts of laughter,
emitted from The Barn
on the last night of school.

The Wooden Bridge
was illuminated by the Full Moon
as the stream sang
over rounded pebbles.

The Woods, deep and dark,
were redolent with myth;
when the sun rose,
rough bark of pine
glowed a peculiar red.

Kevin T. McEneaney MA ‘74 is the author of two books of poetry, The Enclosed Garden and Longing (translated into French and Japanese), as well as books on Tom Wolfe, Russell Banks, and Hunter S. Thompson.
