“Poetry Path” returns to the Intervale this summer

Visitors walking a popular trail in Burlington’s Intervale will again be treated to a little poetic inspiration along with a dose of fresh air.

The Poetry Path features panels displaying bite-sized poems placed at intervals among the trees lining a portion of the Calkins Loop.

“There are other poetry and story walks in our area,” says Mary Chaffee, the Burlington-based writer and volunteer coordinating the project. “This is the only one I know of where graphically designed panels are framed by branches and leaves. You’re gazing up at the poems as you pass by, and that feels great.”

Now in its third year, the Poetry Path was created by members of the Burlington Writers Workshop. New for 2024, the public is cordially invited to submit a tiny poem, haiku, or poetic fragment.
The poems should reflect some part of the Intervale Center’s mission: to respect the wild, sustain the land, and nourish the people.
Submission deadline is May 30. For more information and submission guidelines: https://tinyurl.com/bww-poetrypath-2024
