Historical interlude: Menu for a Poet Laureate
The menu served for the final birthday celebration of Robert Frost, Poet Laureate in Washington, March 26, 1962.
I think often of my most favorite of his poems, The Gift, "Something we were withholding made us weak. Until we found out that it was ourselves"...
And it makes me wonder: Why was it always Turtle Soup?
