"For James Baldwin" cont'd

Kay Boyle never forgot James Baldwin at The MacDowell Colony, "dancing about in the snow in his fox-fur hat, laughing, and singing." Her poem "For James Baldwin" is a personal portrait of their friendship, and recalls "blizzards in New Hampshire, when you wore a foxskin cap, its tail red as autumn on your shoulder."
