Overview


Poetry. "Robert Frost believed a poem should begin in delight and end in wisdom, but in TREE LINE, Judy Halebsky proves a poet never has to choose between the two—her poems begin in both and end in both. Smart, sexy, thoughtful, and beautiful, Halebsky's lyrics are a masterful marriage of tradition and innovation. This remarkable book loves many things—language and landscape to be sure—but most of all, it loves this world and how we make our way in it."—Dean Rader
