Reviews

Smith finds a nourishing grace in simple familiar things. His deep intuitive poems�devotions really�shimmer with an openness to the natural world, a quality shared with poets Kenneth Rexroth, Lucien Stryk, and Oriental Zen masters. -George Myers Jr.



These poems are crisp, lucid, exact. They keep one hand always in contact with the earth, the other on the skin�.I am moved by all of them: the regard for work, for tools, for the turns of phrase, for the legacy of sayings and skills.-Scott Russell Sanders //
