9781885266149: Poems for Paula

Frederick Morgan's "Poems for Paula" is that rare thing in art: an intricate, interlocking collection of lyric and meditative poems that celbrate one of the true-life, comtemporary love stories (that of the author and his co-editor at "The Hudson River, " Paula Deitz) of the last twenty-five years. Inventive, formal, wise, wry, and intellingent, these poems honor and explore the enduring, mythic power of love, and of lives taking clear and solid shape in its forge.

From Publishers Weekly:

Morgan, a founder of the Hudson Review, which he now co-edits with his wife Paula Dietz, honors a 25-year love. This, his 10th poetry volume (first since 1987's New and Selected Poems), opens with a poem in which events of a day spent by a river capture love long shared. "The sun tells stories/ to the restless river/ as the trees listen in./ The river is resistless-/ but the trees recall the rain's/ lisping insistent voice." Rooted in domestic life, rural and urban, most of the poems are gathered in sections titled "Maine" and "New York" (meaning Manhattan) where he has homes. This is a slender book: just 26 poems, usually on one or two pages, of eight to 40 lines. But Morgan's lines are cadenced, rich and thoughtful, his images vivid: "a stream/ dark and serene in China,/ down which sleek goldfish dart and gleam" is his vision (from his city apartment) of school busses on Park Avenue in the rain. Nearly every poem revolves-with grace and gratitude-around the couple or the beloved. At an Easter vigil service in the city, neighbors light candles at midnight: "I, as always,/ take my flame from yours."
