About the book:
In this poetry chapbook of 20 free verse poems, the author expresses her respect, appreciation, and unabashed
love for the old Boyd mansion in Southern Pines, NC, now known as Weymouth Center for the Arts and Humanities,
where writers go to write. What occurred over her three brief stays there during fall, then winter of 2005,
and spring of 2006 was, the inspiration to convey her feelings about what she encountered there. Using her
innate sensitivity and attention to detail, Sandra Ervin Adams takes the reader on a short tour of various
spots both inside and out of the historic house, thereby creating certain moods.

From the book:

A Christmas Caroling
by Sandra Ervin Adams

December we thirst for spirit,
move the coming holy day along,
fill a great room ensconced with light,
trim with fragrant pine boughs.
Sharing poetry and song,
we say to each other
we are hungry
no longer.

their companion location on the library’s website, )
