Poetry

"In an age when poets tend to put too much strain on the cobweb connections between writer and reader, Mrs. Lindbergh's poems are a joy for their clarity and restraint and for the feeling which so swiftly flows from the word to the listener." -- Edward Weeks, Atlantic Monthly

"The reader will be well rewarded who joins the poet in this garden by the mortal sea whence, from time to time, rifts in the clouds shows flashes from immortality." -- Robert Hillyer, The New York Times --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I write today to order three more copies of The Unicorn. You see, I keep giving my dog-eared, margin-scribbled copies away to friends who I hope will be as inspired and comforted by Lindbergh's words as I am.
When my spirit is troubled, I do not need to muddle around in some author's clever obscurities. I need A.M.L. who has "been there" to talk with me in her honest, beautifully fluid way.
If I could "do lunch" with any woman in history, it would be Anne Morrow Lindbergh. She would be herself and I could be me. But "two citadels stand fast."

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple, Subtle Beauty Aug. 24 1998
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Anne Morrow Lindberghs' The Unicorn and other poems is simply beautiful; a refreshing contrast to other, more modern poets whose readers are left to ponder the signifigance of a piece. Such is not the case with The Unicorn. Near every poem is clear enough not to need explaining or deep interpretation, yet retains a subtle element of elegant simplicity. (My comments pertain most specificly pieces such as to The Man and the Child or Elegy under the Stars, but could pertain to any number more.) In a phrase: subtly awesome.

The STONE touches the pain that exists in my

soul as I look for the answers for the death

my mother recently and the nature of our rela-

tionship. Things were not good between us

and now the feelings I have are like the

Stone she describes, in words that touch me

that I could not discover for myself.

4.0 out of 5 stars Revisiting an Old Friend Sept. 24 2011
By Lillie Reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I received this book as a gift when I was a teenager. My copy was somehow misplaced and I missed it, so I purchased this one; an excellent buy! The poems are poignant and historic in relating to the kidnapping of the Lindbergh Baby. The Love and Death poems are terse and meaningful. This return to an old friend after so many years brings far more insight and understanding of the person and emotions behind each verse.

This was one of Anne M Lindbergh's earliest books. I feel she was just getting started. Definitely tells about her very shy, embarrassed personality, but still that she was smitten by Lindbergh.
