Boston Week
by Heng-Cheong Leong

It's "Boston Week" all week long here at MyAppleMenu Reader, as we explore the works of some of the best Boston writers.

Today, two poems from Mr Robert Lowell. Enjoy.

To Speak Of Woe That Is In Marriage
by Robert Lowell

For The Union Dead
by Robert Lowell
The old South Boston Aquarium stands.
in a Sahara of snow now. Its broken windows are boarded.
The bronze weathervane cod has lost half its scales.
The airy tanks are dry.


The Shore
by Richard Ford, New Yorker
