Painter Joan Mitchell and Poet James Schuyler Go Right on Shining

Two Poems by James Schuyler

Daylight

And when I thought,
“Our love might end”
the sun
went right on shining













Sunday

The mint bed is in

bloom: lavender haze
day. The grass is
more than green and
throws up sharp and
cutting lights to
slice through the
plane tree leaves. And
on the cloudless blue
I scribble your name.

Despite this fierce photo, Schuyler's readings of his poems is incredibly gentle. He, Ashbery, O'Hara and Koch were part of a New York group of poets, who retreated to the Hamptons in summer and collaborated with painters Mitchell, Larry Rivers, Jane Freulicher, Nell Blaine, and Grace Hartigan.

  2. Most people think that it's fairly easy to re-decorate a room. After all, what could be easier than painting a wall? However, as with most things, there's a knack to everything, and painting and decorating is no exception.
