In his newest volume, named for the Japanese idea that the best water for tea is melted snow, Michael Longley once again demonstrates that he is one of the best nature poets writing in English. Even in elegies, culogies, and friendship verse, Longley's ability to find the right natural image with which to communicate his fellow feelings is striking. His subtle ministrations allow us to capture "our own little cumulus of exhalations."
