        After Love, by Maxime Kumin

        This video segment from Poetry Everywhere features the poet Maxine Kumin reading her poem “After Love” at the Dodge Poetry Festival. The poem captures a brief moment of tranquility in the life of a married couple. Often compared to the poet Robert Frost, Kumin uses spare, direct language, and careful attention to detail to explore love, loss, and the natural world of her rural New England.

        For a biography of the poet Maxine Kumin, please visit the Poetry Foundation Web site.

        This media asset comes from Poetry Everywhere filmed at the Geraldine R. Dodge Poetry Festival.
