Where the Horse Takes Wing, Madeline DeFrees’ uncollected poems, published in her centennial year, afford a reader the unique opportunity to follow the arc of a poet’s vision for sixty of her ninety-six years, from the convent to the university, to her beloved garden. Madeline was world wise, and that wisdom infuses these poems. Her life and her poems were both spiritual and spirited, and in that way her work provides a blueprint for the examined life. She is a role model for poets.
