A Drum Of Bone A Whistle of Silver
Poems by Angie Boissevain
"These are poems in love with the fleeting world--that travel through its dense underbrush and listen to its secrets. Poems in which the the bees' "solemn feeding," is lifted into ceremony. In which life is a book, "inscribed/on the antlers of a deer,/in the thin red bark of manzanita." There is much wisdom and pleasure to be found in this raucous assembly." – Danusha Lameris
