Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0692377670, Paperback)“Vireo by Sally Nacker is a quiet, beautiful book. With nature as its subject, this collection gives voice to the backdrop of our lives. ‘Where late the sweet birds sang,’ Shakespeare writes, and this might be Nacker’s credo. A semi formalist, Nacker uses rhyme with a master’s grace, and with the music of both joy and sorrow. Dickinson is her clear foremother—in both subject matter and form—but these poems are at the same time Nacker’s own. A lovely and resonant debut collection.”
“The poems in Sally Nacker’s Vireo are bright with insight and surprise: a lawn rake ruminates on its aging owner; a turtle’s shell becomes a room into which the poet, like the turtle, withdraws; a painting turns its viewer into the anxious figure it portrays. Be they light or dark, Nacker plumbs her subjects with a deft touch, a keen sense of sound and harmony, and precise attention to detail. Her refreshingly quiet sensibility is a welcome harbor.”
