The Poet and the Palm Tree – Chelsea Steinauer-Scudder

av Emergence Magazine Podcast | Publicerades 3/31/2020

The poet W.S. Merwin spent the last four decades of his life on Maui, restoring a plot of abandoned land that would become one of the most diverse and expansive palm tree gardens in the world. In this essay, staff writer Chelsea Steinauer-Scudder visits these lush nineteen acres, now home to more than 3,000 palm trees and more than 400 unique species. Merwin wrote poetry in the morning and spent his afternoons planting and tending to trees. His poems are living witness to the care he offered to this land. https://emergencemagazine.org/story/the-poet-and-the-palm-tree/
