Review of "Inland" by Edna St. Vincent Millay

Inland by Edna St. Vincent Millay (1892 - 1950) (pictured) was offered by Poets.org's Poem-A-Day on June 8, 2013.  The poet, a native of Maine, begins by wondering what it must be like for the poor fools who choose to live inland rather than by the sea.  Then, inexplicably, the final stanza introduces some kind of death-wish.
