    the poem is not correct. the last three stanzas are from Elizabeth Bishop's 'The Armadillo.' get it together whoever runs this site.

Skunk Hour

(for Elizabeth Bishop)

Nautilus Island's hermit
heiress still lives through winter in her Spartan cottage;
her sheep still graze above the sea.
Her son's a bishop. Her farmer is first selectman in our village;
she's in her dotage.
