I ordered this collection of brief gems just before I emptied my wallet for Madame de Sévigné’s letters. I’m glad I did. On dark days, Bob’s poems call us back into the light, just as these, his


          Flowers

          How clever to be so
          Beautiful—to have us
          Move them into the light


In its simplicity and simple, sturdy construction, this is a beautiful book, one I’ll leave out for unsuspecting visitors.
