John Heath-Stubbs' new collection is wise, wry and unexpected. In his eighty-sixth year, the poet commands his medium with a virtuoso's easy lightness of touch, returning to lifelong preoccupations with a fresh and intimate attention. His responsiveness to the natural world, to birds in particular, is deepened by a lifetime's observation and listening, and invigorated by delight in nature's unfailing newness.

These masterful, direct, and humorous poems-the latest works of John e to convey the poet's wry and remarkable take on the sights, sounds, cycles, evolution, and freshness of the natural world. This collection mixes a measure of nostalgia with doses of lightheartedness and elegiac beauty.
