The first thing to notice in any poem by Charan SueWollard is the musicality of her words. Lines flow effortlessly; an inner rhythm propels the sound. Then evocative imagery comes to the fore: We saw a legless man in Delhi/balanced on a creeper. It is only after, when light and sound have been explored and appreciated, that the concept at the heart of the poem emerges. Wollard s gift is finding meaning in the mundane birds, rocks, daffodils, apair of socks. Sometimes that meaning is deliveredwith pathos ( Plea to an Iraqi Woman ) or passion ( I Pledge Allegiance to Freedom ), other times with quirky humor ( There is no lover like cotton socks. ) This slim volume, pairing poems with a half-dozenof Wollard s abstract paintings, is evidence of a fascinating point of view.
