It's hard to pick out favorites among so many good poems, but, today, knowing it might shift by tomorrow, I especially liked "These Mornings of Rain," "I Said to Poetry," and "My Daughter is Coming!"
About my reviews: I try to review every book I read, including those that I don't end up enjoying. The reviews are not scholarly, but just indicate my reaction as a reader, reading being my addiction. I am miserly with 5-star reviews; 4 stars means I liked a book very much; 3 stars means I liked it; 2 stars means I didn't like it (though often the 2-star books are very popular with other readers and/or are by authors whose other work I've loved).
