Poetry Walk at The Fells Historic Estate and Gardens
About the Poetry Walk
The Poetry Walk is a collaboration between the Newbury Public Library and the John Hay Estate at the Fells . Our mission is to promote a love of poetry and a deeper connection to our natural world, through the installation of 16 poems throughout the landscape of The Fells.
This poetry installation will be rotated two times a year to reflect the changing seasons, and visitors are welcome to leave their suggestions for future poems as well as any reflections they have in the journals located at each poem site.
Feel free to remove a poem from its stand before returning it to its original position.
Where Is the Walk?
The Walk is located at The John Hay Estate at the Fells :

About the Poem Selection and Placement
Poem selection and poem placement is done by a committee made up of Lea McBain of The Newbury Public Library, Nancy Marashio, Newbury’s Poet Laureate Dianalee Velie, and Simon Parsons of The Fells.
Feel free to contact us with any suggestions for future poems, or leave suggestions in the journals provided on the walk!
