#Poetry Publication: “New Hampshire Comfort”

Review of On and Off the Road: Poems of New Hampshire

I am very pleased to share that my poem “New Hampshire Comfort” has been published in On and Off the Road: Poems of New Hampshire, an anthology of the Peterborough Poetry Project. I was thrilled when a review came out in a local newspaper that singled out my poem (hence, the newspaper photo). I’ve included a PDF of the review if you would like to read it.

The founder of the Peterborough Poetry Project, Bill Chatfield, has been very active in promoting literacy through poetry in our state: About the Peterborough Poetry Project. It’s exciting and gratifying to be a part of it!

  1. Congratulations, Elizabeth! I thoroughly enjoyed listening to you read your lovely poem. It is soothing and grounding and warming, making a knowing smile emerge. How wonderful to be featured in the newspaper, too. Thank you for sharing this!

  2. A lovely poem, a lovely video, and a lovely stream of comments afterwards … Hurrah for small moments of being remembered (if not quite immortality… as eventually even headstones dissolve to sand and dust.) There is a family cemetery on the farm where my sisters live in Ithaca, NY. Not our family’s cemetery — but the family of folks who owned the land before us. It is surrounded by a rusting metal fence, just as you describe. I’ve been walking around a cemetery I discovered in my town this fall — it looks small from the road and then becomes quite huge, ending up with a view of a lake in the neighboring town. I also bike by Mount Auburn Cemetery fairly often. I need to find/make time to walk around there, too. That is a truly magnificent place… The video was very well executed. Did you use iMovie or something similar to make it? Congratulations on everything — your poem, the inclusion in the collection, the review in the paper, the video, AND your supportive community of blog readers!

    1. Thank you so much for your thoughtful comments, Will! I greatly appreciate your taking the time. You’re referring to Mount Aurburn Cemetary in Cambridge, Mass.? My maternal grandparents are buried there. It is a beautiful place to explore. I used MovieMaker to make the video, and I used Camtasia on an old Mac to record my voice. None of my PCs have decent sound quality for recording.


Thank you for stopping by. I would love to hear your thoughts!
