Published posthumously, this strong collection of poems shows a serious appreciation for the earth. Many of the poems deal with or incorporate science in such a way that any reader would reap insights into a theoretical world: "The seething atoms ring the core,/Down burning orbs the photons pour." Metrical and using unforced rhymes, the book's 67 poems include works that sound like little songs: "The waves of wheat are not of wheat;/The waves of grass are not of green;/The waves of ocean where they beat/Are not of water's salty clean." The book has four sections: "Fermi Buffalo," "Myth and History," "Ballads," and "Home and People." The latter section is the strongest, evoking more emotions with which the reader can identify. Yet the four sections work together as a whole. For most libraries.
