A Moment of Inspiration – Mount Battie, Camden, Maine

At the age of 18, Edna St. Vincent Millay climbed Mount Battie in Camden, Maine, and was inspired to write her poem, Renascence. Here’s a version of what she might have seen that day.

In your travels, what has inspired you?

ALL I could see from where I stood
Was three long mountains and a wood;
I turned and looked the other way,
And saw three islands in a bay.
So with my eyes I traced the line        
Of the horizon, thin and fine,
Straight around till I was come
Back to where I’d started from;
And all I saw from where I stood
Was three long mountains and a wood.
