Ants on the melon : a collection of poems by Virginia Adair( Book )
13 editions published between 1996 and 2009 in English and held by 881 libraries worldwide
Mrs. Adair's refusal to publish her first book of poetry until now, at the age of eighty-three, emphasizes the double role of Time as the hero and villain of all human lives, and Time and its rewards and wounds and mercies may be these poems' most profound concern. In his intimate and affectionate Afterword, Robert Mezey, an accomplished poet himself and Mrs. Adair's close friend and literary champion, discusses her reluctance about book publication, and gives us a strong sense of her character and experiences - particularly the devastating impact of her husband's suicide in 1968 and the tragedy of the blindness that struck her in the beginning of this decade. And in the poems we are privileged to make the direct acquaintance, at long last, of this brave and gifted writer

The Mary Virginia Hamilton Adair Papers span the years 1933-2004 (bulk 1995-2004), and include biographical information, poems and drawings, photographs, a televised interview, and a Robert Frost poem. The Biographical Information is arranged chronologically. Included are a few articles from the 1930s discussing Adair's success in poetry competitions. The bulk is dated 1995-2004 and covers her success as a late-blooming poet, the honorary degree she was awarded by Mt. Holyoke, and her death. There are a few clippings from Mt. Holyoke alumnae publications. Some of the articles contain examples of her poetry. The Poems and Drawings include a copy of Mount Holyoke College Verse, published in 1937, which contains several of Adair's poems, written while she was an undergraduate. The drawings were done by Adair on the fly leaves of her Latin text, which was found in the Pearsons Hall library. The Photographs consist of Adair's senior portrait from Mt. Holyoke College: four prints and a photocopy of the same picture. The Televised Interview is a VHS recording of Adair on "The News Hour with Jim Lehrer" from September 9, 1996, lasting fifty-seven minutes long. The Robert Frost poem was gifted to Adair by Ada Snell, Professor of English at Mount Holyoke 1900-1913 and 1916-1938. Inscribed and hand written by Frost to Snell on March 4, 1933, during his stay at Amherst College, the poem is titled "Snow Falling After it Clears." The poem was published under the title "Afterflakes," first in the Yale Review in 1934 and then in A Further Range in 1936
