Praise for The Breath of Parted Lips

Frost wrote, “Young poetry is the breath of parted lips. For the spirit to survive, the mouth must find how to firm and not to harden.” In Franconia’s Frost Place, young poets learn to firm their mouths without hardening their hearts . . . Great poems were written in this house.
