Untitled Event

The Ball Bridge, designed by Windsor’s Charles H. Ball, and patented in 1893, got its strength from heavy-gauge steel pipe. At least 25 such bridges were built in and around Berkshire County. Coleman Bridge, which crosses Phelps Brook on Windsor Bush Road, is on the National Register of Historic places and is one of only two or three still standing. The Holiday Cottage Bridge, which used to lead to Holiday Brook Farm in Dalton, is now in the possession of the Windsor Historical Commission and lives behind the museum. —excerpted from FLASHBACKS, Vol. 1, January 2016 (Windsor Now & Then)

SONG OF THE WITCHES (from Macbeth)
By William Shakespeare

Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn and caldron bubble.

Fillet of a fenny snake,
In the caldron boil and bake;
Eye of newt and toe of frog,
Wool of bat and tongue of dog,
Adder's fork and blind-worm's sting,
Lizard's leg and howlet's wing,
For a charm of powerful trouble,
Like a hell-broth boil and bubble.

Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn and caldron bubble.
Cool it with a baboon's blood,
Then the charm is firm and good.

AFTER APPLE-PICKING
By Robert Frost

My long two-pointed ladder's sticking through a tree
Toward heaven still,
And there's a barrel that I didn't fill
Beside it, and there may be two or three
Apples I didn't pick upon some bough.
But I am done with apple-picking now.
Essence of winter sleep is on the night,
The scent of apples: I am drowsing off.
I cannot rub the strangeness from my sight
I got from looking through a pane of glass
I skimmed this morning from the drinking trough
And held against the world of hoary grass.
It melted, and I let it fall and break.
But I was well
Upon my way to sleep before it fell,
And I could tell
What form my dreaming was about to take.
Magnified apples appear and disappear,
Stem end and blossom end,
And every fleck of russet showing clear.
My instep arch not only keeps the ache,
It keeps the pressure of a ladder-round.
I feel the ladder sway as the boughs bend.
And I keep hearing from the cellar bin
The rumbling sound
Of load on load of apples coming in.
For I have had too much
Of apple-picking: I am overtired
Of the great harvest I myself desired.
There were ten thousand thousand fruit to touch,
Cherish in hand, lift down, and not let fall.
For all
That struck the earth,
No matter if not bruised or spiked with stubble,
Went surely to the cider-apple heap
As of no worth.
One can see what will trouble
This sleep of mine, whatever sleep it is.
Were he not gone,
The woodchuck could say whether it's like his
Long sleep, as I describe its coming on,
Or just some human sleep.

Rivulet Spirals Art Opening

Wiliam Cullen Bryant Homestead

acaluori@thetrustees.org

More about the art work: Todd Lynch's Rivulet Spirals are inspired by William Cullen Bryant's poem, Life.  It is an installation of an ephemeral woven branch sculpture in the form of two interwoven spirals. The form is inspired by patterns of hydrology and the meter and content in the poem. The piece consists of found branches and plant material collected from on-site and crafted into the spirals that will run the length of a fallen tree along the Rivulet Trail.
