it was amazing
bookshelves: canadian, poetry, favorites

This collection of poetry is one of the most amazing collections of poetry that one can read. I have always loved Canadian poets and I would certainly say that Lorna Crozier is easily one of my favourites! I am deeply inspired by what she puts into words both as a reader and as an aspiring poet. Here are a couple of examples: Angel of Numbers (p.81) "In heaven
the season for mathematics
is winter. Chalk falls
from the blackboards,
covers the earth."

Dust(p.142) "and in the mornings when we rise,
the shape of our heads
remains on the pillowslips
as if we leave behind
the part of us
that keeps on dreaming."

Bravo to Lorna Crozier one of Canada's literary treasures! I thank you for your beautiful prose and your courage in life. You and your husband Patrick Lane are truly extraordinary. I'll have to get myself a copy of this and make sure to get it signed.
