Josephine Del Deo was a writer, poet and Muse of True History (to quote Harry Kemp); guardian of the Province Lands, the historical ensemble of Provincetown, the dune shacks and the Center Methodist Church; wife of Sal and mother of Giovanna and Romolo Del Deo; and an early, steady friend of Building Provincetown.
It is hard to imagine Provincetown without Josephine, but I suppose we’ll have to.
As often as I come to here, to the end of it,
Sinking down sunset;
Winging my heart’s passage with the gull,
As often do I rediscover heaven.
