Newtown Arts Festival
Had a great time the other week at the Newtown Arts Festival...wonderful shopping, food, and fun.
Amy's poem, "Still Life with Parsnips and Snow" had won an honorable mention in the Newtowner contest, and she accepted her award.
The judge (blind judging of course) was Dick Allen, the poet laureate of Connecticut, and a good friend, so we were quite happy that he chose Amy's poem as one of the worthies.
Personally, I liked Amy's poem more than the one that won first prize, but of course I am quite partisan when it comes to that.
