Description: Atheneum, New York, 1972, Ist edition.. 63 pp, 8vo (8 15/16" ), hard cover in dust jacket. The Lamont Poetry Selection for 1972. Cover art reproduces William Blake's 'Adam Naming the Beasts'. "The voice of these poems is clear and strong, rising as it does out of the earth to 'the celebrations of the reeds,' living simply and daily among cat-tail, wren, peacock, children, women - These are poems of the real triumphs we seldom understand, the visions of dawn and dusk over the fields and cities where we live, poems that finally embrace even the emptiness 'tasting it bitten face'. The book also includes a group of superb reconstructions of Aztec poems - They are among the best we have today." Bequest bookplate on free front endpaper. Dust jacket has very light edge wear at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, light browning to spine and flap-folds, small closed tear at top of rear panel. VG+/VG.
