Poetry Walk with Scott and Hella McVay

November 4 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

“Let the beauty we love
Be what we do.”  Rumi

The Sourland Conservancy will host a poetry walk with Scott and Hella McVay on Saturday at the Poetry Trail at the D & R Greenway on Rosedale Road in Princeton.

Knowing of the connection between art and conservation through dozens of organizations, including the World Wildlife Fund, and world travel, Hella and Scott McVay created the Poetry Trail on the former Robert Wood Johnson estate’s rolling hills and meadows in 2010.  The trail consists of 48 signs containing poetry –24 by women, 24 by men — from a dozen countries, reaching back more than two millennia.  The poems are arranged in relation to one another and the landscape.
The poems capture the beauty, surprise, awe, mystery, seasonality, and timelessness of nature.

The McVays will provide information about the poets that will enliven the walk and they will encourage participants to read aloud some of the poems.

Scott McVay, a published poet, created the biennial Dodge Foundation four-day Poetry Festival in 1986.  Hella selected the poems, and helped with the design of the signs and their placement.

This event is sponsored by the Sourland Conservancy. Advance registration is required.
