A beautiful collection of poems about nature and human relationships, many imbued with pantheistic feelings. The New York poet, writer, and editor immigrated to the United States as a World War II refugee. She grew up in a pastoral setting, gaining an intimacy with nature that infuses her work.

From “Cascadilla Creek”:

On days I'm feeling modern, I throw a glance
at Cascadilla from the safety of my home.
To walk in faith beside it or dip my hand
into its life means leaving me behind,
maybe for the final trip.
Minus the shell
of thought, how do I keep from fusing
with the creek, its ripples scarcely concealing
the rainbowed yet nameless fish, the rocks
privy to millennia and still no word,
the feathery hard-earned mud, the oak leaves
at the bottom adding their wine, the distillings
drawn as if by magnet away, until they among
countless theys merge at last with the lake. ( )
