Poetry Book Give-Away I: Carolina Ghost Woods

Carolina Ghost Woods by Judy Jordan, 1999 Whitman Award Winner.

Rural elegies, a time capsule, a luxury of sounds piling up in long lines for a slow procession of sound and image. Folk wisdom, herbology, a catalogue of biology and dissapearance.

from "Sandbar at Moore's Creek"

"the delft-blue mussel shells,
fingertip tiny, most beautiful when strewn with loss."

My favorite poem: "Walking the Geese Home." Accessable, luscious, sincere.

TAKEN. But you can also get it from LSU for $6.00.
