From Library Journal:

In The Morning of the Poem ( LJ 5/15/ 80) Schuyler quipped: ``Poetry / takes it out of you, or you/ have to have a surge to bring/ to it.'' That A Few Days is a depleted echo of Morning 's surge is highlighted by their structural similar itya sampling of verse is followed by a suite of poems and the long title piece. In the short poems it is a shock to find the soft spot in Schuyler's conversa tional style: namedropping; tedious crocheting; embarrassing, obsessive confidences about an unrequited love. A newly prominent word in his vocabu lary is the uninspiring ``perhaps.'' A short suite of exquisitely constructed poems on English subjects is followed by the title poem, a discursive medita tion which is built around, but never succeeds in containing, the death of Schuyler's mother. The Morning of the Poem remains this fine poet's essential work of the past decade. Rob Schmieder, Boston
