In this selection of poems published between 1981 and 1994, Pattiann Rogers reveals the beatification of the natural world and the seer of that world in the interaction of observer and observed. Yes she is more comfortable with science than most contemporary poets who pretend that there is a great divide in the beauty witnessed by both. Rogers knows better as she invests the natural world with love and lust and fills her rooms and her very body with the universe. Her language has a clarity that is not simple and a simplicity that is not flaccid. I recommend her work for those who love great poetry, who love the natural world, and who want to see someone mend the tears we have made in ourselves and between ourselves and our universe.
