About this title:

Synopsis: Divided into four sections, one for each season of the year, an anthology of sixty-seven haiku and tanka, Japanese forms of verse, explores the poet's thoughts and feelings about the world and its wonders.

From School Library Journal: Grade 4-8. A collection of original selections worthy of Livingston's status as a major modern American poet. Using the Japanese forms of haiku and tanka, Livingston reflects on the year's seasons. The uniqueness of each one is sketched in clear, economic language: spring's activity ("Whirring from fuchsia/to fuchsia, the hummingbird/shops for his dinner"); summer's lazy reflectiveness ("Even the moon lies/on its back, rolling over/to stare into space"); autumn's farewells ("One by one, circling/down to earth, these yellow birds,/these frail, falling leaves"). This collection joins Ann Atwood's Haiku (Scribners, 1971; o.p.); Harry Behn's Haiku Harvest (Peter Pauper Press, 1962; o.p.); and J. Patrick Lewis's Black Swan, White Crow (Atheneum, 1995) in offering readers stunning evidence of the beauty and power of the sparest of poetic forms. De Kiefte's pen-and-ink sketches support the work's quiet thoughtfulness. A book whose contents make it worth opening again and again.?Kathleen Whalin, Greenwich Country Day School, CT
