by Rick Smith
Lummox Press (2010)
“Rick Smith’s spare yet dense poetry is reminiscent of Basho, the Japanese haiku master, and displays much of the same restraint and discipline.”— Mark Terrill
“The wren lends itself to ethical and etymological inquiry, the poet says. This new collection, including lyrics from The Wren Notebook, embodies an expansive, precise, obdurate rhythm, a generous wisdom and tender vision. This is the mature Rick Smith, delving deeper into what is smaller.” Vicki Lindner (from the introduction)
