The Square House--94 Shaker Road, Harvard, Massachusetts
One of my favorite house I lived is immortalized in this poem. Built before the Revolution by Ireland Shadrach, it went on to serve as the birthplace for the Shaker movement in Harvard, Mass when Mother Ann Lee lived in it. It was an unusual and magical house--invaded by nature and haunted by a ghost, its history, it the home where my son Jack took his first steps and my daughter Hallie was born. The Poetry Center of San Jose chose it for its anthology Caesura, published in in the spring of 2017.
