If you travel east from Ogdensburg to the Atlantic Ocean and follow the coast to the small fishing village of Port Clyde, Maine. There you can take a passenger ferry eleven miles to Monhegan Island, a small island community where about 10 lobstermen and hundreds of summer residents, many of them artists, reside. When you leave the village dock follow the road to the right, walking (there are no cars on the Island) up to the top of Horn Hill. There growing beside an artist’s and his wife’s summer home is this flower. A flower nurtured by her and the misty Atlantic air under the crystal blue Monhegan sky. A flower that is descended from royalty, with a white that is beyond lily white. It is Sara white.
