About the book:

"These are documents of a luminous life, grateful and deeply felt."-Scott Cairns, author of Compass of Affection: Poems New & Selected "Settle in and read. These are not poems of escape, but of calm-a quiet with vast possibility."-Jay Paul, author of Going Home in Flood Time "Beverly Foote's work evokes the wit and wisdom of the Metaphysical Poets. Her vibrant imagery always surprises and delights. Take these lines, for example: Responding to Bach's music, she says, 'The cells in my brain/ begin to dance in their cerebral ballroom..' And 'Grandma,' shed of her corset, rocks in her chair, while 'from her bureau drawers/ white hair nets are trying to escape.' John Donne would have approved."-Grace Simpson, former Poet Laureate of Virginia, author of Dancing the Bones Cover photograph by Laura van Assendelft Author photograph by Ty Brown Beverly Foote is a retired English and Latin teacher, having taught in Virginia Beach Public Schools and at Norfolk Academy. A graduate of Douglass College, Rutgers University, she received a master's degree from the Bread Loaf School of English, Middlebury College. She has also studied at The University of Virginia; The University of the South; Lincoln College, Oxford; and St. Andrews University, Scotland. Her poems have won awards in contests sponsored by the Poetry Society of Virginia and have appeared in The Poet's Domain, Virginia Writing, Soaring and Gliding, and English Journal. She and her husband live in Virginia Beach, Virginia.
