This posthumous collection of poems was largely complete at the time of Wright's premature death in 1980, but it doesn't hold a candle to The Branch Will Not Break and Shall We Gather at the River.

Wright's last collection, published posthumously. So much sad, dark beauty in this voice. I love the Ohio ones particularly "The Turtle Overnight," ""The Sumac in Ohio." ALso, "A True Voice," and "Coming Home to Maui."

Great Collection, Among my favorites are "Among Sunflowers," "Camomilla," "Butterfly Fish," and "The Turtle Overnight." His pastoral observations are second to none, a modern Whitman.
