Informal Concerts of Music Old & New 

I suppose what moves me most is the place:

The music crossed with the hills and the river.

At Charlemont the music somehow belongs

much as the music of Bach must have belonged

in those little chambers where it was first played.

There is no lovelier place on earth than Franklin County.

But until music began in Charlemont,

it could speak only to the eye.

Now it has a voice - its own.
