As editor, I cannot ethically review this book, but I can share with you a few of the poems that have stuck with me.


HOSANNA

Nothing to hosanna, you will be buried
cold. Only the living go on living.

Worship the wind-hover while it’s a-wing,
let scything talons fret the meadow grass.

If you bear likeness to the rough face
staring up from a lake, swallow grief, plunge

The authors unique name as well as his poetry. Temple Cone's poems in the first part of book interested me. (Reading them more than once) the second part of No Loneliness was not my poetic linkings. My two overall favorites are Consideration of Earth and Sky and Gambrel.

There’s a goodness of spirit that imbues these excellent poems even when the subject is painful as in “Killings” where it is necessary to end the suffering of a deer hit by a car. “Swans” presents a perfect image of their flight

Their bright lifting sails
Never knew flight
Was not a matter of tilting wings
But of flinging them
Forward into air
In an endless lasting embrace.”
Laura M Kaminski
NO LONELINESS is a book to savor. Mr. Cone has translated a keen sense of observation and reverence for nature -- including our own -- onto the page with a matching reverence for language and well-chosen words. A very satisfying collection of poems, a tea ceremony in paperback.
