Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0156001209, Paperback)Wherein the poet continues her literary program with much the same sort of excellent poems about nature, the connection between the natural and the physical, and the tug-of-war between the familiar and the mysterious. I Found A Dead Fox, seemingly influenced by William Carlos Williams, gives one a good sense of the imagery in this fine collection. Oliver writes: "I found a dead fox / beside the gravel road,/ curled up inside the big/ iron wheel/ of an old tractor." Toads, mockingbirds, and afternoons of chopping wood fill these pages, as do beautiful, provocative images. Highly recommended.

Poetry of nature. In Fall she writes: "the black oaks / fling their bronze fruit / into all the pockets of earth / pock pock / they knock against the thresholds / the roof the sidewalk / fill the eaves / the bottom line / of the old gold song / of the almost finished year."
