Publisher Comments:

Opening with a powerful sequence of poems about her mother's death, Elizabeth Spires writes about the life-and-death matters of midlife: the separation of parent from child, the loss of family and friends, the evolving nature of our closest friendships. These poems find hope in the seasonal and spiritual moment when "the green blade rises."

Synopsis:

"Spires is a jewel of a poet, never self-conscious or self-indulgent."--Los Angeles Times

About the Author
