Poignant, inspiring, and full of wisdom, "Morning Song "celebrates the joy a new child brings to the life of parents and family. With sources ranging from the Bible, Sappho, and traditional songs to Dickinson, Yeats, Frost, and our outstanding contemporary poets, this beautiful collection summons the cosmic and the comic, the spiritual and the pragmatic, the whimsical and the divine. Sections such as "Conception and Grace," "Waiting," "Sleep and Song," and "Green and Carefree" evoke the breadth of the parenting experience and capture the emotional intensity of this magical time.
Among the poets included here are:
Mary Jo Salter
An ideal gift book for any parent-to-be, this classic collection will become a treasured companion during the many hours spent waiting and caring for a child.
