"All night each reedy whinny/from a bird no bigger than a heart/flies out of a tall black pine/and, in a breath, is taken away/by the stars." Since the late sixties, former U.S. Poet Laureate Ted Kooser has been giving voice to screech owls and other creatures, including humans, of the Great Plains. In this long-awaited new collection of poetry, the Nebraska writer once again displays his keen, but gentle sense of observation.
