Visit To Brown's Ice Cream (Dairy Store) - Stillwater, MN


At 920 Olive Street West
Forty blocks off the beaten track
A mountain of ice cream for the price of a dime
What poor tourists most need to know.

The locals have mastered their lessons so well
They are not confused by the word 'Nelsons' on the roof
Even as I cherish our young host's smile
Even as much as the miracle of dinner for the price of a dime.

    I am not sure about the references here Bill but I certainlt like this piece. It has the feel of an Edward Hopper painting (one of his city life pieces) . There seems to be some joke here but there is also a lot of pathos.

    This is a snappy and artful piece. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Thomas Wyatt

Farewell love and all thy laws forever;
Thy baited hooks shall tangle me no more.
Senec and Plato call me from thy lore
To perfect wealth, my wit for to endeavour.
