This selection of Margaret Crosland's poetry shows her to be worthy of a place among that small circle of English women poets of unassertive but authentic accomplishment—poets like Sylvia Townsend Warner, Ruth Pitter, and Anne Ridler—and like them she has her own quietly distinctive voice. Her poetry is honest, unobtrusively learned, and unpretentious. The title of this book comes from the author's observation that life consists of little else: we meet people, places, jobs, ideas, but they are rarely there forever, there is always a parting, or at least a development in some way. This new collection contains both old favorites, revised for this volume, and new poems.
