At the Beach with Sylvia Plath

Photo of Sylvia Plath from Gordon Ames Lameyer Papers probably from the Summer of 1953.

Even some who never read your poetry,

know about your suicide, troubled marriage, depression,

and life in the bell jar vacuum.

This cold day, I see you young,

a happy, blonde dream on a beach.
