A Nova Scotia stone

Recently, American poet Michael Morse visited Great Village and stayed at the Elizabeth Bishop House. By his account, he had a pleasant time travelling around the area and spending a lot of time by the Bay of Fundy. On his drive back to New York City, where he lives, Michael stopped in Worcester, MA, and visited Bishop's grave in Hope Cemetery. He sent the photo below: a Nova Scotia stone placed on Bishop's gravestone.
