A superb new assortment by means of a wizard of up to date poetry
Everything widens with distance, during this perspective.
The dog's paws, trotting, rotate his finish of infinity
and dam water feels a shiver few willow drapes share.
Bright leaks via their wigwam re-purple the thin beans
then speedily the sunshine tops treetops and is shortened
into an afternoon. in every single place stands pat beside its shadow
for the good bald radiance by no means visible in dreams.

Sus libros son vastos terrenos que seguirán siendo explorados en las mentes de los lectores mientras sigan siendo lectores.»
