At the earliest ending of winter,
In March, a scrawny cry from outside
Seemed like a sound in his mind.

He knew that he heard it,
A bird’s cry, at daylight or before,
In the early March wind.

The sun was rising at six,
No longer a battered panache above snow…
It would have been outside.

That scrawny cry—it was
A chorister whose c preceded the choir.
It was part of the colossal sun,

Surrounded by its choral rings,
Still far away. It was like
A new knowledge of reality.

- Wallace Stevens

In this hurried world, the Garden of Ideas is a place to slow down.   To stop, look, and listen.  There is so much more to see, to hear, to smell, to taste, and to feel.    Wake up your senses in this place and become more alive.


Whether you take a self-directed stroll or participate in one of our programs, we hope you will leave renewed.
