handmade paper binding with ribbon decorative add on. out of print a group of short lyrics written after the poems in Jan Zwicky’s award-winning volume, Songs for Relinquishing the Earth (Brick Books, 1999). The finest poetry has always seemed to us to stem from an eye for detail and an ear for the musical phrase. Perhaps that is obvious, but these poems are not. They rejoice rarely in the commonplace. These are, indeed, songs: The day has taken off her silk shirt and turned it inside out ... (from Small Song: Moonlight) The big sea comes in the tall clothes of night, it comes in the afternoon, brilliant in the rags of grief. It raises lace-gloved hands among the rocks and weeds, and beckons at your feet. ... (from Small Song to Oneself)
