The poem, like the title of this book, are delicious paradoxes. Though richly grounded in the natural world, they suddenly break through into moments of spiritual grace and wonder, and the authority of their cadence can unexpectedly give way to surprising leaps of language and ideas. From first to last, Mersmannís vivid images and beneficent intelligence are a continuous pleasure.
