The Book With The Yellow Cover
by John Moncure Wetterau
The author writes, "This book is modeled on a book of Chinese and Japanese poems that I gave to a friend on the west coast. It was a very small book with a yellow cover, stapled together. No adornments. Just the poems, alive after hundreds of years. The original edition was stapled and sized to fit in a shirt pocket."
A fine first collection in the style of Gary Snyder and Mary Oliver.
