Fan Letter


April 3, 2016

To My Dear Robinson Jeffers,


When the fog rolls and the horn sounds

I will think of the stones you carried

up the hill on Carmel Point

to set a foundation for Tor House

You kept going higher and higher

until you met the hawk

the world expanding around you

your small window with a view of the Pacific

I want life and death to come as naturally

I want to thank you for placing stone

upon stone in such a way it formed

narrow pathway to the highest point



NaPoWriMo prompt to write a fan letter.  Mine is to

thank Robinson Jeffers for building Tor House and

Hawk Tower back in the early years of the 20th century.


“Against the outcrop boulders of a

raised beach

We built our house when I and my

love were young.

Here long ago . . .

. . . all that we saw or heard

was beautiful.”                Robinson Jeffers
