The poems in Rachel Webster's debut collection September often address a fleeting moment. Like the month, the moment can be a single leaf falling or a season of life. Webster's pastoral poems address personal physical change in the seasons of life, including childhood, love, motherhood, and death. Together they lead the reader through a lyrical landscape of conversation, meditation, and healing. The work of a poet sensitive to worlds external and internal, September speaks to the core of life and the simplicity of human events and the natural world around us.
