The poems in Sydney Lea’s Young of the Year range widely as they stretch out over considered, affective sentences that call to mind the heady “wail and whisper and funk” of musicians like Clifford Brown and Clyde McPhatter, the New England musings of Robert Frost, and Robert Penn Warren’s narratives and anecdotes. Casting a candid and contemplative look back at a life lived and out at a world alive with motion, Young of the Year shows us a poet who poignantly traces the intersection between the worlds of nature, science, and the spiritual.
