"The music of CARTER's poems is utterly new, and yet as traditional as American hymns. The work is striking for its emotional accuracy. . . .Hers is a fresh, original voice." —Grace Shulman

From the Book:


Driving east in the bower of an apple-green
returned spring
as rain wet everything quickly
and the fields, opening,
received their seed, I thought:
have I brought our daughter this far east
to learn there are places
to which she can't belong;
that once a mind isolates, a veil falls...

ANNE BABSON CARTER has lived in New York City and rural Connecticut, and has been a wife and mother as well as a poet.
