By Carolyn Miller
Carolyn Miller is a lyric poet of redeeming grace and severe readability. Her poems are grounded in a feeling of the incredible, as though viewing lifestyles via a jewel, reworking the darkish international of reminiscence and hope right into a luminous presence. She is a grasp of distilled moments. The temper of the poems in Route sixty six and Its Sorrows is either elegiac and celebratory. She returns us to what's nurturing in our lives and on this planet: “everywhere / cicadas and crickets are rasping out their short sentient lives, / and rancid within the woods a whippoorwill retains calling / that every second is sweeter and extra useful / than any you'll ever flavor again.” I learn her poems with admiration and deep pleasure.—Joseph Stroud
