In 1936 the Amagansett Lore and Legend published a poem by John Hall Wheelock... It expresses this summer hat beautifully...Here, where the long ranges of the dunes roll, Their tawny billows to the south and to the north and against the sky flutters the pale sea-grass, fresh is the wind - and the whole Clear hollow of heaven is full of the wine of thy glory, even as the waves curve upward - they fall - they fall along the shallows, along the far shore-line They burst in thunder and light ... and are shattered as I dream. This is my heart's country...Here is my heart's home.
