Reeve, winner of the Golden Rose for lifelong poetic achievement. Reeve is a thinking-persons poet-meditative, weaving memories, mythic figures, personal reflections, and natural observances to arrive at larger truths. The short poems range from the elegiac Village Graveyard and philosophical Coasting, a poem of almost perfect proportions, to such love poems as Voices, and the witty Telephone. Some of the poems express the sadness of irrecoverable loss- some the inevitability- and some rejoice in consequent rebirth and renewal. Repeatedly, throughout the book, the past is brought up against the present, this world against the next, the particular against the general.
