It's my LUCK to be living in Philadelphia, where Bartram's Garden actually exists, and of course Bartram's TREE! The flower on the cover is sublime, and one August (that's when the tree's in bloom) I sat beneath the tree to read this book from cover to cover. COME TO PHILADELPHIA in August and read this book with me, let's make a habit of it! Let's make a tradition of it! Let's LOVE this magnificent poetry together why don't we!?

With Love,
Paul Secor
Reread some of the poems recently and raised up my rating.

As the years pass me by, my appreciation of Jonathan Williams' poetry increases.
This fantastic book contains Williams most exciting poems-- those composed with the greatest proximity to Black Mountain College.
