Description of this Electronic Book

On an unlikely pilgrimage, a cycling tour to find a poet's unmarked crib, Jane Simpson discovers a landscape at once less Romantic, and more lyrical than the 'unspoilt Nature' seen by tourists at scenic spots. Unexpected turns draw the reader into the worlds of goddess religions, pre-contact Maori society and western Christianity; and into the intimate world of family relationships. In the final section, where the sun and stars sing at the marriage of gay people in the Church, Wordsworth's piano is tuned to the harmony of the spheres.

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review Jane Simpson's new collection of poems is a gift for her elderly father, a retired Professor of Fine Arts, silversmith, bibliophile. How are we to remember a lifetime together? Perhaps as 'a lacquered bowl, chipped, like memories.' Herein is poetry as the servant of time, as the heart of a daughter.
- Bernadette Hall
