Where the Deer Were: Poems
This is wise and moving verse: not abstract or self-consciously "modern," but clean and convincing - verse, as Robert Creeley has commented, "of a deep and heartfelt clarity." These are poems that examine and celebrate the ingredients of our humanity: friendship and wonder, loneliness and endurance, sexuality and unrequited longing, familial ties and the overriding relationship of the individual to nature, to landscape and animals, and to the living earth itself.
