The Wild Braid

Stanley Kunitz, who was our poet laureate twice in his long life, gave Studio 360 a tour of his beautiful Cape Cod garden in 2001, a few years before his death.  He is an inspiration, and his poem The Wild Braid beautifully evokes our connection to the natural world.  It is a treat to hear him read it himself, which you can do here.

If you love poetry, and gardens, you must read his book by the same name, which he wrote with his longtime assistant Genine Lentine, and has photographs of the poet in his garden by Marnie Crawford Samuelson.
