Poems About the Earth

Book - 2002
Rate this:
This provocative collection of poems ranges from such lofty subjects as an astronaut's view of Earth to the burrows of worms and little creatures within the earth, "where I try to tread softly: a quiet giant leaving only footprints on the roof." Marilyn Singer's lilting free verse offers visual images that give us fresh new insights and respect for the mighty power of volcanoes, fens, islands, deserts, dunes, and natural disasters. Singer's easily accessible poems also include some of the lighter moments of childhood, such as sliding on ice and playing in mud. Meilo So's distinctive india ink drawings on rice paper provide an especially handsome showcase for these buoyant nature poems. From the Hardcover edition.
