River of Life, to your heart I confide
My lightest pleasures and darkest secrets.
Reveal to my consciousness all facets
Of emotion which waver with your tide.

In these poems can be found half a life of love won and love lost, a natural world observed and experienced, and wisdom gained … and occasionally unheeded.

The soul is a deep valley, rounded and roughened by life’s glaciers. Its sides are steep and dry, its basin flat and lush. And throughout it life abounds.
