"In this stunning collection, Bauke Kamstra has scooped out the hollow of nature and returned with the expressions of its soul. Everywhere the poet looks, he sees acutely: a tree 'has earned/its suffering/and its pieces/falling,' and of the people who live in its river weathering, Kamstra remembers that 'my mother's accordion/played so/many hymns/but the ecstasy/was all hers.' From the opening poem, in which a woman's washing reveals her violence, to his lament that he is returning with a war poem but not his leg, 'because my leg died there,' Kamstra reveals himself as a deeply gifted poet. Emily Dickinson would have kept this collection nearby." ~Charles Bane, Jr., author of The Chapbook, Love Poems; creator of The Meaning Of Poetry series for the Gutenberg Project, current nominee as Poet Laureate of Florida.
