Raymond Buck has been called Sanibel Island, Florida's Village poet. He is, however, a New England Yankee in blood, bone, ancestry, and education. Born and raised in Rhode Island, his first experience in poetry was as an eighteen-year-old freshman at Dartmouth at the feet (literally) of Robert Frost. The revered poet's woodland/farmland shoes were of more fascination than the verse at the time. Mr. Buck's writing interests then, and for six decades to follow, were journalism and drama. His experiences on stage have provided a dramatic quality to his reading of his verse. South of Providence features the first section of his epic poem on the life-long friendship of the 14th President Franklin Pierce and the novelist Nathaniel Hawthorne (Easter Eve Eighteen Sixty Five) and a selection of poems of love, gardens, New England coastal locales, nature and the folks of Florida, aging, and life and thought in a time of change.
