Dust of the Road

by Victor Densmore


Victor Densmore fully explores the nature of his experiences, memories, and imaginings as filtered through the haziness of time, memory, and perception. He casts his eyes along the traveled and imagined paths laid out before and after him. With a powerfully refined voice, Densmore reveals for us through the shadows of memory and time glimpses of our shared journeys.

Out of the Hermit’s Meadow and Wood

by Victor Densmore


The poems in Victor Densmore’s first volume speak to the passage of life through the celebration of memories of friends, images of farm life, and homages to those who’ve gone before. A strong debut and brilliant introduction to Densmore’s work, the reader is left with a sense of the vastness of a life lived in few moments given.

In an early review of the original print run Tom Slayton — then editor of Vermont Life Magazine — said “… Victor Densmore’s poetry … is finely wrought and sweet and reminds me a bit of the poetry of the late William Mundell who also celebrated the passing life of the farm.”

Fellow Vermont Poet, Jerry Johnson, wrote “Each poem is a treasure. As someone who lives on a farm, I identified with Victor’s words. As a fellow poet, I’ve been blessed to have done some readings with Victor. Any reader of poetry will be drawn to Victor’s beautifully lyrical images.”

The first edition can still be purchased through local bookstores, or from us here for $6.50 plus $3.50 shipping and handling. A special edition will be available later this year with an edited line up of poems, a new introduction from the author, and a few other surprises.
