Written over a period of nearly twenty years and compiled at Stewart Warren’s home at Nido del Cielo in the Piedra Lumbre Basin, The Song of It is a collection of poems and short personal stories that describe the author’s relationship to the land, people and spirits of northern New Mexico and southern Colorado—a region, and way of life, sometimes referred to as Norteño.

From the Back Cover:

In this substantial collection, Stewart Warren proves himself to be a traveling poet of northern New Mexico, not a tourist but a pilgrim who returns again and again to people, place, and land. The setting can be as charged as the Santuario de Chimayo or as intimate as an old car.
But this world is animate--the frost acts like a lively bride and a collapsing house still offers shelter. There are pure lyrics here, and tiny anecdotal prose pieces reminiscent of Jim Sagel. To read these poems is to fall in love again with language and northern New Mexico.
--Miriam Sagan, author of MAP OF THE LOST (UNM Press)

Reading Stewart Warren's new book, The Song of It, I suddenly realized how thirsty I have been! I was indeed in the presence of poetry, magnificent poetry (and prose) that comes out of the wild heart of the world--a world which we can only enter as lovers, and with "our hats in our hands," a world that curls itself around us, but that we rarely see. Those moments when you do wake to it, Warren assures us, "You are standing/in the center of time/and everything you touch/will take you home."
      --James Tipton, author of Letters from a Stranger and All the Horses of Heaven

About the Author:

Born and partly raised in eastern Oklahoma, at the age of seventeen Stewart Warren became a convicted felon. He holds no university degrees. Neither of these details have hindered his passions nor his abilities to be a writer and a teacher. Quite the contrary.

Earlier in his life Stewart travelled in Canada, the U.S. and Mexico, catching rides at truck stops, small plane terminals and along farm to market roads while working his way through a variety of cultures and landscapes from Haight Ashbury to Cuernavaca. In more recent decades he has settled into a pattern of small migrations through southern Colorado and northern New Mexico, following an “unseen friend” on a path of self discovery and camaraderie with fellow travellers. Stewart is author of thirteen poetry collections and is published in various journals and anthologies. His poetry is both personal and transpersonal with a mystic undercurrent. As a publishing coach and an organizer of community events, Stewart assists others in deepening their creative experience and realizing their artistic visions. His books, and some audio, can be found at www.heartlink.com.
