9780809307746: Music From Home

Music from Home is a substantial selec­tion of the poetry of Colleen McElroy. Her poetry sings her gentleness, hu­mor, sorrow and pain, and, above all, love. She is a remarkably flexible and gifted contemporary American poet whose poetry reflects her era. It sets down the essentials memorably, with wisdom as well as emotion.
