Ronald Harrison Fenn presents “Select Seasonal Poems of Robert Frost and of the Poet from New England to the American Southwest” as part of National Poetry Month. Mr. Fenn has been the author of fifteen volumes of journal, five collections of ongoing poetry, one short story, numerous essays, book reviews, letters, and public lectures for the past fifty years. In 2014 one of his poems was published in a Dennis Conservation Trust newsletter.

A Cape Cod resident, Mr. Fenn is semi-retired, devoting most of his time to writing poems, his journals, correspondence, traveling, and working on a thirty-five year research project focused on uncovering the historical roots, tenets, and experience of unique American character that defines us as a nation. He has been a guest lecturer at various public schools, colleges, and post-graduate institutes of higher learning and civic organizations with topics ranging from poetry and early American history to critical thinking skills. He recently completed a series of poetic reflections of select Robert Frost poems of the seasons. He teaches mathematics as an adjunct faculty member at Cape Cod Community College and is widely known for his StartSmart and SatSmart tutorial programs that have resulted in outstanding achievements for students from Cape Cod’s public and private schools.
