Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"This collection is, as the young Owen Gromme hoped, 'an atlas to a new constellation of birds,' but is also a landscape of human events and places. . . . The language in these poems is as concise and beautiful as bird wings, and page after page is filled with the sweet sorrow of song and flight."—Joyce Sutphen

"The poems of a man who has been watching and listening to birds and to the world. Owen Gromme, the remarkable artist who painted portraits of 600 Wisconsin birds, appears in these poems along with human and avian songs, prayers, and facts."—Susan Firer

Synopsis:

An intimate collection of magical poems where birds behave as humans, experiencing love, loss, and faith.
