This collection brings together a collection of poetry from the of prairie writer/naturalist Robert Nero.

This collection is rather like an album of snapshots to leaf through . . . here is Bob walking the dog; here in the garden with Ruth; here pensively watching from his window. Each poem is carefully crafted to reveal the essence of one event and his appreciation of it. There is no sweeping grandeur here; these are personal vignettes. Each poem captures a poet’s impressions with startling clarity. Each thoughtfully chosen word contributes to a quiet eloquence which pervades the entire volume.
