A poem is such a tiny thing that strives to contain the entire universe. If one poem hit the target, that would be enough for a lifetime. So it's astonishing how perfect and lovely and stunning fulfilling so many of these poems are.
I don't know how Li-Young Lee is able to connect so completely with life on such a deep emotional level, but I'm thankful that he's doing it.
His early stuff was so good, and he's just getting better and better. It's absolutely stunning.
I got this from the library but I'm definitely buying at least one copy.
