"The power that Kumin draws from and brings to literature is potent and seemingly inexhaustible."—Booklist

Collected here for the first time, these early poems inhabit Kumin's own "sneakstorm time," a space one step to the side, where quiet introspection examines the pain of loss, the idealism of youth, and the endurance of the natural world.
