Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0887395384, Paperback)Poetry. The birth of Jesus floats in the center of this circle of poems, which bring together the strange and beautiful threads of lore that Christianity loosely binds in the oft-told story of the nativity. Animals, shepards, bugs and royalty speak in their distinct voices through Farber's taut cycle of lyrics.
"These poems are votaries, little fires Farber lights one by one as we turn the pages. Playful, somber, weighted with the foreshadow of sorrow, these flames burn steady, sure—giving off, in their aggregate, a fine and indelible heat."—Paulann Peterson
