Heart of Stone: A Picture Book
by Marjorie Dodge
Heart of Stone: A Picture Book is composed of poems that are visual as well as verbal. They are poems that speak the universal heart, mind and soul. The poems are introduced in metaphor by the title poem, "Heart of Stone", as individual prisms carved by living rivers of intuition, and hidden within the heart of an impassive granite mountain (the poet).
