Happy Birthday, Edna St. Vincent Millay, 130 yrs!

Here’s a poem Edna St. Vincent Millay (b. 1892) wrote…from her book Collected Poems called “To Elinor Wylie.” It’s a series poem containing sections (six), full of sonnet and one in the middle. I read it aloud in the morning fog today on Edna’s birthday Feb. 22, 130 yrs earth.

This sky of rose was seen just before the sun rose.

b. Feb. 22, 1892, Rockland, Maine, d. Oct. 19, 1950, Austerlitz, NY.
