Robert Dash was a celebrated artist, poet and gardener. He founded the Madoo Conservancy, the magical garden and museum on the East End of Long Island. His paintings are in over two dozen national and international museums.</p>
<p>“I wanted The Poetry Pot to look ancient and hoary, as if it had been buried for centuries under the sea, which is why some of the words have been rubbed out. The script was incised in imitation of cuneiform or something Greek. The various rhymes circle around Madoo, which means “My Dove,” therefore “love” and “glove” and “above.” The text has echoes of my favorite Gertrude Stein: ‘I am rose’.” - Robert Dash
