Collected Here for the first time, these early poems inhabit Kumin's own "sneakstorm time, " a space one step to the side, where quiet introspection examines the pain of loss, the idealism of youth, and the endurance of the natural world. Her characteristic earthy wisdom snaps with intensity, offering a refreshing perspective on everyday experiences.
