  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.
