Staff Reviews


Our shelves may overflow with words of verse and soulful reflection, but few offer the gentle reminder that time is fluid, fleeting, beautiful, and here in the present. I have read even less contemporary poems more profound than those in Call This Room a Station. There are so many passages that cater to the senses, including "Epithalamium," "Grace Below the Pass," "The Son We Had," "Slow Starter" (Seattleites will appreciate this one) and many more. These personal reflections from the life of talented wordsmith John Willson should be placed alongside the best; amongst Mary Oliver, Frank O'Hara or Robert Frost... You really must experience this book.

Description


"John Willson's poems are guides for wanderers. Such great tenderness and delicacy live in these lines, a softness of presence/absence in the rich fabric of birds, skies, highly attuned relationships woven through time. Mysterious maps of ancestral legacy vibrate as a low hum--people who birthed us, poets who birthed our souls, and the infinite winding roads--with so many meaningful points on the compass, so many homes."
Naomi Shihab Nye
