Sermon on a Perfect Spring Day: Poems
Philip Bryant writes out of his African American experience growing up on the south side of Chicago in the 1950s and '60s, nurtured by the loving and wise extended family. Bryant's poetry is alive with jazz music and the light pouring through church windows. Funny, warm, and humane, the poems in SERMON ON A PERFECT SPRING DAY lead us back into the heart of family and home, wherever we may find them.
