A sense of the romance in music, art, love, and landscapes permeates this lyrical collection from a sophisticated poet. The southern mountains of New Zealand and the towns and countrysides of Italy are among the landscapes evoked in one section. Specially commissioned for this collection, line drawings and photographs from regional artists such as Anne Noble, John Reynolds, Seraphine Pick, and Denis O'Connor are included with a contemplative response poem about each image. Nostalgia for youth is woven into haunting evocations of popular music from the 1970s in the final section of this many-faceted collection.
