Where the waters speak
MILAN -- Robert Bly started his automobile trip from Willmar at dusk and reached a small bridge near Milan as moonlight covered the water.
He was very likely on the way home to his farm place outside of Madison in Lac qui Parle County.
His experience became a much celebrated poem, "Driving toward the Lac Qui Parle River.''
It was published in 1962 as part of a collection of his works "Silence in the Snowy Fields.''
