In "Promising The Air", Plumly describes a woman who dreams of a small boy and cries for him in her sleep, and he finishes the poem by dedicating it to her and "for the boy"-- which is a Stevens-like abstraction of acknowledging the real force and presence of the dream boy.
In "Maples", Plumly describes a vacation with his parents, the "honey moon" in the trees, and driving along the road in the dark.
I am describing all of these poems from memory because I know them so well; Plumly is one of the most important contemporary poets we have and deserves far more attention.
