This impressive collection of new poems shows us Skelton stepping out in a new direction. Moving easily between free verse and closed forms (villanelles, sestinas, sonnets, rondeaus, and even arcane Welsh forms), Skelton addresses family, friends and readers everywhere to create a poetry of presence, a communion through language, in the face of a darkening world.

Acknowledged as one of Canada's leading men of letters, Robin Skelton grew up in England. During World War II, he served in India and Ceylon with the R.A.F. In 1963, he emigrated to Canada to teach at the University of Victoria, where he founded the Creative Writing Department. Renowned as a scholar and critic of art and literature, he has become an authority on poetic forms and the Irish drama. In 1991, he retired from the University of Victoria and is now a full-time writer. Skeltonis a novelist, short-story writer, memoirist, translator, anthologist, editor, publisher, and an expert on the mysteries of witchcraft. Above all else, he is a superb poet with over eighty books of poetry to his credit.
