I only wish I had the time to devote to this superbly crafted, soul-deep volume: the time to bed down with each poem, stare reverentially into each painting. . . .I have read and written enough poetry, known enough true poets to know I am in the company of a highly accomplished poet in Lois V. Walker. -- - --Vincent Clemente, Prof. Emeritus SCCC
Part of poetry s enjoyment is coming across lines that stop you and compel your complete amazement. Lois V. Walker s 232-page book is certainly a Pandora s Box of combinations of words jumping out for your excitement and pleasure. Here is one such line from her poem, The Classic Impulse : dip your fingers in the sky/ surround my search with arms/ a spread of summer rain. That is an example of the extraordinary language that characterizes contemporary American poetry and Long Island poetry. --Maxwell Wheat, Poet Laureate Nassau County
