My friend Molly again

April 11th, 2011

Molly was visiting Merrimack College last week and photographed its famously awkward three-quarters sculpture of Robert Frost:

She annotated her photograph with the following homage:

Some say my statue will end in thighs,
Some say in feet.
From what I’ve come to realize,
I hold with those who favor thighs.
But if they sculpted me complete
I think I know enough of art
To say that for completion, feet
Are also nice,
And would be neat.

    Awesome! I love me some iambs.

    It was a toss-up between that and “The Feet Less Sculpted.” Or maybe “Stopping at the Knees on a Snowy Evening”.

    Oh, you have to do the latter as well! That’s too funny.

    I’m now thinking that Frost took the road less traveled because he didn’t want to slow down his fellow travelers by NOT HAVING FEET.

    I’ll toss the title of “Stopping at the Knees…” to my muse Parodia and see if anything comes back. :)
