Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0978862821, Paperback)

"The poems in If He Could See Me Now illuminate the world with dazzling intensity and insight. The human heart-its fearlessness and fragility, its insatiable desire to understand the complexity of living, its openness to "Heaven's intense-blue possibilities," its attachment to place and landscape-beats in every poem. Her language is precise, sometimes startling, always beautiful." -Janet Albright, award-winning writer, first place, Inkpot's Creative Non-fiction Contest; and winner Sarasota Fiction Writers' Contest "Joyce Pye's poems encompass a remarkable and sometimes wild and funny range of diction and imagery, whether in the formal poems or those in free verse . Here is a poet who juxtaposes a "gentle maiden" with "worm-fat flats," "mud-sucked boots" with an "azure sky," and "monkey toes" with an "angels' choir." . In her best poems, a sure sense of metaphor and a gift for compression make it all come together seamlessly." -Annie Finch, author of Calendars, Director, Stonecoast MFA, University of Southern Maine "Here is a small book made for an evening with hot tea, a good fire, and time to wander through history. It does not matter if you think world or personal, one of these poems will catch you and you will look at changes differently. In these often deceptively simple poems there are borders to cross and always the need to keep moving beyond." -Michael Macklin, poet, carpenter, and Reviews Editor for The Cafe Review Joyce Pye is an author and poet whose works include essays, historical articles and poetry published in both Maine and Ireland. Her first book, Ireland's Musical Instrument Makers: Who They Are and How to Find Them, was released by Salmon Publishing, Galway and featured on BBC radio in Ireland. A Maine native with major ramblings abroad, Joyce Pye currently resides in Bath, Maine. Galway is the city, however, that makes her heart sing. Her poetry has appeared in two anthologies, A Sense of Place: Collected Maine Poems and Coming Home Twice.
