    I did not want to stop reading this beautiful book

    For months I carried What the Living Do around to share Marie Howe's poems with friends They evoke smiles, tears and quiet nods of recognition and love of human imperfection Yes read it

    I Also Recommend:

    A remarkable collection of poetry

    I had never heard of Marie Howe until a couple of summers ago when someone shared one of her poems with me. Then I read "What the Living Do" and realized that she is a true master. I have never felt a piece of writing as deeply as I did this collection of poems. It's remarkable how deeply Marie Howe looks into her soul and the souls of others and how bravely she writes about what she finds there. Certainly worth every cent I paid for the book. Worth much, much more.

    Read it!

    I have met marie howe and she is as honest and down to earth as her book. it had and almost shocking type of realism and was very different from the other poetry books i've read. Her book was very much a personal narrative of her life and the lives that intertwined wth hers. i especially enjoyed the poem, how some of it happened, and have even memorized it to share with my writing class.

    ※ Secret Passages ~ Liv ※

    Secret passages lead you,
    <p>
    To where you need to go,
    <p>
    And if you are silent,
    <p>
    No one will know.
    <p>
    Ever whisper,
    <p>
    Is turned to a scream,
    <p>
    Every shadow seems to stare,
    <p>
    The comfort of companionship,
    <p>
    Is not there.
    <p>
    Every squeak of the shoe,
    <p>
    Every creak of the stairs,
    <p>
    Is heard through the lonliness,
    <p>
    In the secret passage.
    <p>
    Hope you likey! ~Liv
