In 1990 Louise de Kiriline Lawrence
celebrated her ninety-sixth birthday. The richness of her detailed nature observations and her exceptional use of the English language have attracted an international following. Dr. Robert Nero, a noted ornithologist, demonstrates his admiration and affection for this remarkable woman through his environmentally sensitive and insightful poetry.
“Robert Nero etches with a loving hand — spider webs, fallen feathers, insect wings — significant encounters with the beauty of ‘ordinary‘ life. He teaches us to see.” – Candace Savage, The Northwest Territories
Robert W. Nero
a well-known scientist and educator with numerous natural history publications to his credit, Robert W. Nero has attracted attention in recent years through published collections of his poetry. Woman By the Shore (1990), The Mulch Pile (1993) and Spring Again (1997) firmly established Bob Nero‘s standing in the field of poetry. Several creditable poems also appeared in a well-received book about his travels with a tame Great Gray Owl: Lady Grayl: Owl With a Mission (1994). Even a recent account of his archaeological exploits, The Site: A Personal Odyssey (2001), contains some appropriate poetry. His most recent poetry collection is Growing Old Together (2005); as with all of the aforementioned books, it was published by Natural Heritage Books. Robert Nero and his wife, Ruth, live in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
