There is poetry at the very heart of Brook Farm Inn in Lenox Massachusetts.
The Library at Our Berkshires Inn
Discover our Library, a focal point of the inn, with its extensive collection of poetry, both traditional and contemporary, along with other fine literature…and a good selection of popular books as well. We showcase a poem of the day each morning, and we encourage our guests to browse our collection and find a book to sit and read in front of the Library fireplace, in your room, in the gardens outside, in the hammock or beside the pool.
Poetry Readings at Our Berkshires Inn
Throughout the year, we hold poetry readings and other entertainments at the inn’s Library, often at tea time, when guests may also enjoy homemade scones and strawberry jam. In Linda’s other life, she has been a media specialist and an accomplished storyteller, and she puts her talents to good use for the benefit of the guests at our Berkshires Inn. One of our guests was kind enough to sum it all up for us:
To bed you have to climb a stair
Peacefulness is everywhere
A calm oasis has been found
Poetry floats all around
And so today it’s time to part
But memories stay in my heart
And in return a part of me
I leave behind in poetry
