Don Share's work is compressed as a haiku, intent as a tanka, witty as a sonnet, witless as a song, relentless as an expose, patter without pretension . . . his elegant poetry, exposed as a haiku, expansive as a renga, boisterous as a bridge, happy as Delmore Schwartz with Lou Reed and vice versa, vivacious as the living day . . . built out of attention, music and sight. --David Shapiro
Share is one of the more gifted craftsmen we have writing in America today. --Erin Belieu, Boston Review
Few poets manage such dexterous and fresh music. --Alice Fulton
