I am so grateful for this collection of poems. So many of my poetry heroes are in this book–Gerard Manley Hopkins and Robert Frost, Jane Hirshfield, Wendell Berry, Li-Young Lee, Pablo Neruda, Tomas Tranströmer–such a powerful gathering of voices that span centuries and continents. I love, too, that there are many poets in this collection who are new to me. And, full disclosure, I am so grateful to have a poem in this collection as well, conversing with these other poets about the earth and all the ways it holds us and how we, too, are called to care for it. I love that Barkat has done the work of gathering poems that bring us into deeper connection with this fragile and resilient planet and with each other.”
