These often resonant poems treat themes related to scenes of the north country, to love and loss, to travels and sojourns in Greece, and to our periodic need for reflection and repose. They thoughtfully and musically play on nuances of the words of the title, Bearing North, and deftly confirm skills the poet displayed in his evocative earlier work, Born of a Cretan Spring.2016 0-7734-8230-X1999 0-7734-3123-3
The poems linger over details of the moment, and evoke a sense of place with a range of notes as of a cello.
