“Oliver touches on the building of houses and the laying of turtle eggs. She ponders the work of Frost, Poe, Whitman, and Hopkins. She includes some of her own poems and prose poems. And she speaks beautifully of the work of poem-building.” – Amazon.com review

This is a new weekly feature where we highlight 3 poems from a recent collection of poetry.

Poetry, however, does not come naturally for us in our times; it is a discipline to which we must commit ourselves.”

This week’s collection of poems is:
