in Columbus, Ohio

NOT Pennsylvania

Virgil Gelormino wrote several poems about his stay at St. Vincent's. It is a telling story. He has given me permission to put links to them here.

Here is the link to his main page. It has links to all his poetry. This encompasses his stay at both At. Anne's until he was 6 and then his stay at St. Vincent's after he turned 6.


His move from St. Anne's to St. Vincents.

These are links to the individual poems concerning his life at St Vincent's. Some of them have the pictures shown on the previous page.
