"In Middlebury’s production of Our Town,
three local churches served as the stage:
Baptist for the first act; Methodist, the second;
And St. Stephen’s Episcopal (mine) for the third.

who carried lanterns past stages vignettes:
two lovers spooned behind the bandstand on the green,
a horse and buggy meandered down the street,
and in the window of the barber shop
a barber stood with razor and strop''
