This is a book to raise another wallagainst the winter! Pages turned deliberately recall other fires that burned, summer to fall. The camera has caught the color of the marsh, the mood of trees along wet April creeks; the light speaks of mysteries beyond the fern and has taken thought for contrasts of birch bark and autumn leaf in mud! This warms the blood and is chief in November over fire.
I scan again green frog beside foxglove, red dragonfly on cedar, painted turtle above a rock, and do not know that the wind leaps higher!
