I began to suspect something,
and when i walked over to check, sure enough, they were Emily
Dickinson and Robert Frost cleverly sculptured in black metal
sillouette, in rapt conversation about poetry and flies and clocks
and less travelled roads, etc. So, as far as the town of Amherst was
concerned, their honored former residents, Em and Bob, were
contemporaneous enough in spirit to be in eternal conversation right
there in the park on Main St., regardless of the weather.
I assume they are still there, although I haven't checked lately.
