A Secret Weeping Of Stones: New and Selected Poems
Visited by the hard weather of melancholy and harsh truth, the terrain of this collection fills with shadows and stone, sorrows and ash - its world broken by a daughter's violent death. But such seasons of pain are not relentless. In rich and memorable lines, Ron Talney gives us delight in vivid images, wisdom in striking tropes. Offering respite and solace, he creates from "...rocks and trees/the poems we need."
