For Camille Claudel

The Scarecrow February (Birth) edition just came out in PDF format!

I’m happy to have discovered the wonderful online publication The ScarecrowMany thanks to the editor for taking my poem inspired by a play I saw about the artist Camille Claudel. The Winnipesaukee Playhouse in Meredith, New Hampshire put on “The Waltz” back in September, and I was shocked and awed by the little known life of Camille Claudel, a master sculpture artist. She suffered later in life, unable to escape the shadow of her mentor, the most famous master sculptor, Auguste Rodin.
