County Clare and Other Poems

County Clare and Other Poems is a collection of poems that explores the natural world and the longings of the soul, in lines that recall the discursive leanings of Walt Whitman and the soul leanings of W. B. Yeats and Theodore Roethke while maintaining a colloquial voice infused with imagination. Titles of individual poems can provide a glimpse into the topics explored: "Let's Call Up the Spirit of the Ancient Oak Trees," "Christmas Poem," "Words for a Dying Infant Bird," "To Walt Whitman," "The Great Law of Immigration," "Clothes for All Seasons," "Goodbye," "If Someone Pallowed," "Dead or Alive," "San Francisco 1986," and "Poets for Peace."
