Nature : poems old and new by May Swenson( Book )

6 editions published between 1994 and 2000 in English and held by 802 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The special quality of Swenson's work has won her love and praise from all schools of poetry. "Surely no one, scientist or poet," wrote poet laureate Howard Nemerov, "has seen things ... so clearly as she, and surely no one has made seeing and saying so nearly one." Her visions, though idiosyncratic, appeal to every kind of viewer. In this wonderful collection, the reader will find poems in rhyme and out of it, poems in odd shapes and forms, poems of praise and observation and sensuous delight. They gather themselves under rubrics of the natural world: Frontispieces, Selves, Days, Feathers, Makings, Instincts, Heavens, Visions, Waters, and an Afterpiece. To enter the ocean of these poems is to enter the ocean of the self, a self that feels itself at one with the natural world
