This April day: poems
Judson Mitcham is, to use his own fine phrase, a "comedian of innocence." And in his new book he shows himself to be a comedian of experience as well. I can't think of a poet in America today who is writing more movingly or with a greater depth of humor. His poems can inspire tears or laughter. Often both. --Mark Jarman
