These poems touch, caress, ponder, and probe myriad facets of the world’s body, that tangible, earthy presence that sustains and enlivens us. A daughter in her fashion of all-encompassing Walt, Theresa Burns revels in the whole of the tuneful yet muddy yet encouraging yet saddening drama, the great participial thrust Walt was so keen on—living. Carefully wrought, each poem has that this-is-a-leaf-from-the-earth feel, a fullness of feeling that is explicit and—to use one of the poet’s words— evergreen.
—Baron Wormser, Poet Laureate of Vermont, 2000 - 2006
