Poetry. These poems cover three winters of work out of the 60 Roth has spent making his observations of the natural world in upstate New York. Combined with a passion for the hidden, the unseen and the undiscovered in the life of a singular person, these poems move past simple dimensions and on into the depth, beauty and complexity of a natural world that our own brains have only just begun to dream as if they were reality. As the great French poet Yves Bonnefoy remarked: "Tending a small fire in winter to keep warm: what a magnificent definition of poetry, rising from the page of these equally beautiful poems by Paul B. Roth! Our winter, the present dark ages. Our fire, the words. Our warmth, the confidence these poems give us in the day as it breaks tomorrow, perhaps, upon the embers of tonight's fire."
