This is the first book of poetry by an award-winning author of seven books on gardening. The poems grew out of a lifetime love affair with the landscape of rural New England. "These deeply felt poems are the distillation of a life rooted in the landscape and seasonal rhythms of southwestern Connecticut. Disarmingly simple, they speak directly to the reader of events and objects both commonplace and extraordinary. Sometimes cheering, sometimes achingly sad, they never fail to touch the heart and mind and are unmistakably the offspring of a wise, gentle, and generous spirit." - Tom Fischer, Editor-in-Chief, Timber Press.
