Many of Stafford's poems seem simple and quiet, but hide a depth and firmness of voice that makes me keep going back to them. When I have read Stafford, I see the world differently and feel different.

This volume may not be my favorite, but I enjoy it tremendously, and it contains one of my favorite poems, "Waking at 3 a.m."

Stafford's poems are so subtle, matter-of-fact, and deep. I love his common-sense insight.
