Maybe the Land Sings Back



Maybe the Land Sings Back dream-walks through tenderness, loneliness, and a house-full of troubled love. Birds and a fast mile, a daughter's questions, and the small daily adventures of her learning make magic, though threats to its tendrils of peace come close and stay too long. Yet 'even when you talk about feeling crazy your letters / are so calm,' a friend says in one of the poems: such is the paradoxical wonder of this first collection." -Lisa Lewis
