In this collection of poems
noted naturalist-writer, Robert Nero, offers insightful reflections on a variety of birds, from peregrine falcons, great grey owls and common ravens to pine martins and orioles. We are also offered surprising glimpses of such diverse wildlife as frogs, chipmunks, shrews, ants, dragonflies and spiders. It is nature in all seasons that holds Dr Nero’s attention as he develops intriguing views of ordinary scenes and events. But the poems in this collection also speak of love, passion and introspection, thus revealing a deeper and increasingly personal side of one of Canada’s most respected naturalists.
A combination of scientific training and expe-rience, along with ecological awareness and writer’s craft, is brought to bear in this fine assortment of poems. As in his two previous poetry books, we are privileged to share some fairly intimate aspects of the relationship between Bob Nero and his wife Ruth. This sur-prising writer enriches our awareness of the diversity of nature while exposing some of his deepest and most tender thoughts and feelings.
