Dust on a Precipice: New and Selected Poems

Dust on a Precipice: New and Selected Poems

by Evelyn Perkins Ames




Evelyn Ames describes as consistently recurring themes in her poems "the precariousness of existence and the fleeting yet positive affirmation of joy and meaning in life's experiences." She finds harmony and balance in nature--and all living creatures--from which modern man has become perilously detached. Widely published, her prose books include Daughter of the House and A Glimpse of Eden. The poems in this, her second book of verse, have been awarded several prizes and have appeared in the New Yorker, Harper's, Saturday Review, and other publications.
