As certainly as September showers signal the serene exodus of summer, the poems in this accomplished collection summon the reader to ponder the inescapable paradox of the late season. With grace and maturity, September Rain celebrates the harvest with its festivals of gathering, the silent speech of life's passing, and the ensuing seasonal "recycling" of the earth's snow-covered crust.September Rain is a cyclical sequence that glances back in search of endings and gazes ahead to find its origins. This is poetry at its vintage best."Although he has done valuable work as a critic, editor, anthologist, and translator, Montreal-born Seymour Mayne is most distinctly a poet, more impressively in control of his medium with each succeeding volume ofpoetry."- Modern Jewish Studies Annual
