Product description


"These seemingly slight lyrical moments of exquisite attention to grief and loss are so clear, so without even a trace of literary ambition, they hover in the mind like scraps of music we can't forget, like the apparitions of innocent spirits, erased, but re-surfacing with irrepressible exuberance, whenever we open ourselves to the world that has gone on without them." (George Amabile)

"Blodgett's profound poetic meditation explores primordial innocence, the brutalities and betrayals of the current world of experience, and the possibility of an integrated, timeless state of innocence. These poems will break your heart, take your breath away, and give it back again in 'verdant hallelujahs.'" (Susan McCaslin)
