About the Author
Top Customer Reviews
For this reader the joy of Emma Trelles is the return to poems that sparkle with descriptive atmosphere much the way memories of favorite places nudge us to return. In HEADING INTO THE EVERGLADES she weaves
'The road rivers through two horizons,
palmetto and dragonflies flower the ground
by the highway that threads through the cypress.'
In IN AN ALCOVE BETWEEN THE BEACON AND THE AVALON she paints
chalked cobalt and plum, everything
rose-soaked until the very air is watercolored solace.'
In FROM THE SHORECREST, MIAMI BEACH she playfully wanders through her memories of childhood and after
in '....this place where the sky at dusk is an altar
Chagall would have painted with his plain-faced angels.'
At once witty, nostalgic, romantic and funny, Emma Trelles offers Little Spells in every poem she writes. This is an important American poet. Reader Alert! Grady Harp, November 08
