Hello everyone! This short, sweet poem celebrating the beauty that comes with a day’s end will be our final #tbt feature for this year. It was published in Spring 1963 and was accompanied by an illustration by the author, Sara Lord Norris ’63, as well as a solemn piece by Pat Prycyl ’64 on the following page.
It’s bittersweet, but the end of the 2018-2019 school year is upon us and with that, The Minor Bird’s 90th issue is now officially in print! Thank you to all who were a part of this project, whether you submitted your work, dedicated long evenings to serving on the Editorial Board, came to our Launch Party, or simply supported us along the way. We could not have ended the year with such an amazing issue without our Chatham community, and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
With that said, be sure to pick up your free copy of the Minor Bird on campus! Copies are available in the library, Lindsay House, Cafe Rachel, and Student Affairs. This year’s article features incredible poetry, prose, and art from current students and Chatham alums, and you won’t want to miss it.
See you next year!
Happy spring! We’re celebrating by featuring this short, sweet poem as our #TBT!
This piece from the cover of our 2015 issue is one of our favorites. This untitled piece was created by Sarah Saxon, a Minor Bird rockstar whose cover art was also previously featured as an MB Throwback!
Happy National Poetry Day! We’re celebrating by featuring this poem by alumna Alice Cihat about two strangers on a Pittsburgh bus. It was published way back in the Winter 1967 issue of the Minor Bird.
