Cover for ZIMMER: The Great Bird of Love: Poems

The Great Bird of Love


"The Great Bird of Love brims with a life so intense that it must be told quietly. The pages are quirky, full of surprise, variety, humor, and the sustaining reliable voice of a worthy guide to experience. These poems come from perception informed by sympathy, and the language is alive with verbal adventure."
-- William Stafford
