Truth Is Beauty That Hurts
The Collected Poems of Elizabeth M. Come
There is much to love and enjoy in the poetry of Elizabeth M. Come, as you are about to discover. She was a woman who paid attention to the world, both outside her windows, and within. Her poems are filled with inner visions, of peace and aliveness and God, as well as a sense of the mystical wonders of nature, big as the sky, tiny as "the lace-making spider." She often reminds me of Emily Dickinson, and yet has a very specific charm all her own. These poems are filled with a sense of love and hurt, sensuality, creation, God and romantic love, animals and the soul, sweetness and anger, and a fierce social conscience....

Wise, and spiritual, and down to earth, she can be funny, and then she can break your heart; so there is joy in this poetry, and healing, sharp insight, truth, and pleasure.

- from the Foreword by Anne Lamott, author of Crooked Little Heart
