Abstract

This is How I Sing to You is a collection of narrative poetry which sheds the notion that such subject matter is easily dismissed. These poems resonate, follow a life and respect the press of time: placing you somewhere near the beginning and allowing you to find your way to what, for now, is the end. In a life, and in these poems, there is losing and finding; gift-giving and truth-telling; staying put and leaving; looking back and moving forward. There is sky and some rain. There are dogs. There is a spider. There is lots of singing.
