Summary

Praise for Donald Revell:"No poet so innovative is more accessible, and no poet half so accessible in recent years has made the language so new."- Publishers Weekly , starred review Acclaimed poet Donald Revell continues to avow devotion to the pastoral tradition in this pilgrimage through the mind's Eden. Joy and mortality instruct these poems, using nature to inform the spirit and assemble the dream of human happiness and unification.From "Lay of Wood":I want celestial light, but not apocalyptic. The end of the world is an old story. I'm starting a new one. Yellowbird here for one day only, These emeralds are trees. Fly fast.Poet, translator, and critic Donald Revell has authored ten previous collections of poetry. Winner of the 2008 NEA Translation Award, the 2004 Lenore Marshall Poetry Prize, and two-time winner of the PEN Center USA Award in Poetry, Revell has also received fellowships from the NEA, Ingram Merrill, and John Simon Guggenheim memorial foundations. He is poetry editor of the Colorado Review .Revell's eleventh collection courageously seeks enlightenment and the ethereal, crafting a world where environment informs action.

Excerpts

From "Lay of Wood":

I want celestial light, but not apocalyptic.
The end of the world is an old story.
I'm starting a new one.
Yellowbird here for one day only,
These emeralds are trees.
Fly fast.
