A voice from a walled garden, the end product of a long and rigorous alchemy. -- Li-Young Lee
These poems negotiate the boundaries between our minds and our bodies, between the many singers and the single singed heart. -- Jane Mead
This is a work of spiritual intelligence, rueful, loving, ecstatic, an everyman sings here of God, lover, nature, all one. -- Jean Valentine
