UPDATE: The Poems in the Pasture labyrinth is currently closed, as the Johnson Grass has gotten the better of us. We may try to redesign it this fall to make it habitable year round!
Poems in the Pasture is a walking meditation and poetry-writing or thinking or reading exercise in the field next to the museum. A small labyrinth mowed into the field takes you on a journey with stops along the way to read poetry, consider various ideas, write and enjoy the natural world.
The labyrinth is small and takes about 10-15 minutes to walk in and then out of it. If you take a clipboard in with you and stop at each of the 10 Poem in the Pasture stops, it can take as long as you like!
Poems, words, phrases, etc. that you write inside the labyrinth can be displayed on a Poems in the Pasture board inside the museum.
There are poems and activities inside the labyrinth.
You can come out and walk the labyrinth anytime during daytime hours. The museum is usually open, but call ahead if you want to make sure. 918-864-9152. Leave a message if there is no answer.
