Since I'm Island-born home's as precise as if a mumbly old carpenter, shoulder-straps crossed wrong, laid it out, refigured to the last three-eighths of shingle.

Milton James Rhode Acorn (1923-1986, Charlottetown). Since I'm Island-born home's as precise as if a mumbly old carpenter, shoulder-straps crossed wrong, laid it out, refigured to the last three-eighths of shingle. Nowhere that plowcut worms heal themselves in red loam; spruces squat, skirts in sand or the stones of a river rattle its dark tunnel under the elms, is there a spot not measured by hands; no direction I couldn't walk to the wave-lined edge of home. Quiet shores - beaches that roar but walk two thousand paces and the sea becomes an odd shining glimpse among the jeweled zigzag low hills.

a spot not measured by hands; no direction I couldn't walk to the wave-lined edge of home. From: The Island Means Minago.

Widely acknowledged to be Prince Edward Island's greatest poet, Milton Acorn was born in Charlottetown in 1923 and died there in 1986. A significant contributor to the Canadian literary scene of the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s, he counted Al Purdy, Eli Mandel, Leonard Cohen, Irving Layton and Patrick Lane among his friends. The original "People's Poet," Acorn received a medal and cash prize from his peers at Toronto's Grossman's Tavern in 1970 when his selected poems, I've Tasted My Blood, failed to win the Governor General's Award. He went on to receive Canada's highest literary honour for The Island Means Minago, published in 1975. Acorn was the author of ten books of poetry, and, with Cedric Smith, he co-authored the play, The Road to Charlottetown. Although he lived in various Canadian cities between 1951 and 1981, Acorn's finely tuned homing instincts always brought him back to the Island. Now Anne Compton, another Island poet, brings us The Edge of Home: Milton Acorn from the Island, a collection of Acorn's poems written about, or rooted in, his home province. Selected from books published between 1956 and 1983, the sixty-two poems range in topic from nature and landscape to Island people and politics. Compton's critical essay, "The Ecological Poetics of Milton Acorn," shows how Acorn's Island infuses many of his finest poems.
