In this first collection of poems, Lillian Morrison evokes the experiences and responses of an urban girlhood. In images and rhythms springing from city life, she celebrates existence: construction workers in orange hats, a game of ringaleevio, a skinny stick-ball player homeward bound at twilight, or "a white butterfly on a dandelion." ... Warmly human, vigorous, and tender in turn, her poems vary in mood and in form, but all share an athletic spareness of style. Some explore personal themes and feelings; some take long looks at ordinary people; some reverberate with drumbeats from the past. Direct and unpretentious, they show a felicitous combination of authentic emotion and technical command. --Thomas Y. Crowell Company
