    IN MEMORY OF DAVY: This is a poem I wrote a million years ago in Breadloaf, Vermont. Davy, my nephew, liked it; and so, I share it with you. God Bless YALE.

    Big Fat Man
    Way up in that sea of stars
    Smiling down on the night
    Rocks back and forth in an old wicker chair
    as sparks fly down from his Meerschaum pipe
    Shooting Star? Firefly? I don't know what I see,
    But when I jump and let out a cry, that big fat man just laughs at me.

    Breadloaf Vermont 1970
