"Buck's poems are somehow surprising in their simple directness and rightness of wording, their unpretentious but convincing wisdom. And their uncluttered power as poetry. They are genuine, refreshing, and inimitable. "--Peter Levi
Buck has quietly built a reputation for the clarity, concentration, and direct emotional weight of her poems. Whether writing about nature, faith, childhood, art, places, or people, she explores the presences that deepen our lives through imagery solidly rooted in the world of the sense and in daily life.
