Love and mortality, those concerns of religion, are themes of some of the poems. Though these are poems of a "second half," of a mature life, they sometimes also share youth's, and religion's, concern with the doing of a life, doing better, doing right. Youth-like too is the usual setting of these poems, in what seems very much a child's outdoors, a world of sunlight and water here, a place for looking and doing, and reflecting on looking and doing, an outwardness that leads inward. Nature and the encounter, adventure with it help give these short, spare poems their freshness and immediacy.
