Editorial Reviews

Review

"Some Heaven is a considerable book of poems. Many poets feel that they know the natural world, but Todd Davis has absorbed this world fully into his heart and mind. He is a fine, rare poet." -- --Jim Harrison, author of The Shape of the Journey: New and Collected Poems and The Woman Lit by Fireflies

Some Heaven is a book rich in compassion and tenderness. The poems, through which Todd Davis limns the life and growth of his family, have a quietly penetrating power that can take the reader by surprise and delight and make him, or her, all the better for the experience. They open clear windows into the natural world and irresistibly draw us through them. -- --Dan Gerber, author of Trying to Catch the Horses and A Last Bridge Home

Format: Paperback
Pushcart Prize-nominated poet Todd Davis presents Some Heaven, an anthology of free-verse poetry about growth, change, and the twin powers of compassion and love. Poignant environmental metaphors emerge reflecting a thoughtful sense of wonder of the natural world, and its reflection on humankind. An evocative collection, recommended for seasoned poetry lovers. "First Snow, after September 11th": Last night the wind came strong / from the north, brought black / walnut and maple limbs back / to earth - fence row cluttered / in despair. Across the field / a crow beats his wings / against heavy clouds.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Todd Davis is really a poet who loves his work, his family and nature. All this is deeply reflected in his poems. I had a chance to speak with Mr. Davis through a poetry writing class in Baltimore. He was warm, interesting, and very open to questions about his writing and his love of the outdoors. Todd really shows you his corner of heaven in Pennsylvania.
