DescriptionDeveloping and expanding the explorations of previous works, this mature collection invokes shepherds and farm laborers, lakes and swimmers, and the changes of the seasonsamid a play of light and shade, abandon and reserve. Suffused with the scents and colors of the Mediterranean landscape, these quietly thoughtful poems choose subtle over obvious effects yet convey an astoundingforce and beauty. Meditating upon erotic and rural themes, these poemsreveal an affirmation of the unending power of language through short love lyrics, portrait poems, anecdotes, satirical epigrams, and beautifully crafted narratives of travel and memory."
