Inspired by the Harvard Shaker Community, for many years considered the spiritual center of the Shaker world, Susan Edwards Richmond embarked on this collection while poet-in-residence at the Fruitlands Museum.  Spoken in the voices of Shaker sisters and brethern, as well as modern-day visitors, with lines and themes drawn from the pages of Fruitlands’ extensive collection of transcribed journals, these poems bring to life with authentic detail a vibrant community now lost to history. 

Plain cloth, plain words,

clean-scented as herbs

bundled and dried

on apothecary shelves.
