"Manners" by Elizabeth Bishop

On the video to the right is Elizabeth Bishop's poem, "Manners" from her book of poems, Questions of Travel (1965).   Elizabeth Bishop lived with her maternal grandparents in Nova Scotia following the death of her father when she was eight months old and the mental illness that institutionalized her mother when she was only five years old.  Listen to the love and admiration she gives her grandfather.
