“This collection of contemporary nature poems, inspired by both the rolling and craggy regions of the Catskill Mountains as well as the rural haunt of John Burroughs, is a faithful remembrance of the 19th century naturalist. The authors of this varied collection all met regularly on or near Burroughs’ front porch deep in the Catskills to enjoy each other’s company and hone their poetic tools – clear language, love of the poetic tradition, and sharp and penetrating observation. While many of the poems offer testaments to the beauty and inspiration found in nature, there are also numerous poems that register an awareness of mortality. This is a wonderful book to carry along on a leisurely hike into the woods – sit down on a comfortable stone and spend an hour reading; if you are in the city, sit in a park or café with these poems and let the celebrations and laments regarding green leaves and bare branches naturize your setting”.
—Barry Wallenstein, author of five collections of poetry. Most recent collection of poetry is Tony's World
