The poetry of Rick Bessette gives us a chance to see the world through the eyes of a real Vermonter – in tune with the loves around him, and in love with the landscape in all its moods.
Alec Webb/ Shelburne Farms
…Rick’s writing springs directly from his warm spirit and his love for this land and community. Each poem is a doorway into the place in our hearts where it is possible to simply appreciate the earth and each other—the relationships that matter most in life.
