Colorado Book Award Finalist
A lively new collection from one of America's most celebrated contemporary poets
Denise Levertov has called acclaimed poet Pattiann Rogers "a visionary of reality, perceiving the material world with such intensity of response that impulse, intention, meaning, interconnections beyond the skin of appearance are revealed." In her new collection, Rogers takes the reader on an exploration of human endeavor. Full of color and action, wonder and fear, these poems investigate, reflect upon, and create experiences relative to music, art, and theater, as well as to the universe and its creatures, large and small. They are distinguished by the penetrating vision and avid imagination that have made Rogers one of today's most outstanding poets.
Symphony in Three Movements
1. Lost in the Heart of the Concert
I thread through the assembly
All the while Satan in white
I try to avoid him, wandering
He understands, he forgives.
He willingly enters the cadence
No canticle, no hymm of salvation
