Lush photographs grace the pages of this poetic ode to the bittersweet brilliance of fall. Editor Barbara Rogasky's collection of 25 poems and excerpts feature such luminaries as Walt Whitman, Mary Oliver, William Butler Yeats, Marge Piercy, and Shirley Hughes. Although photographer Marc Tauss's images are exquisite, his interpretation of the verses is perhaps overly literal. Edwin Arlington Robinson's "The Sheaves," for example--"Fair days went on till another day / A thousand golden sheaves were lying there, / Shining and still, but not for long to stay / As if a thousand girls with golden hair / Might rise from where they slept and go away"--is illustrated by a photo of a cherubic blonde girl lying in a field, with a mysteriously glowing bundle of wheat hovering above her. But for those who don't mind the lack of inference, the book is lustrous, a delightful taste of the season that inspired Edgar Allan Poe to write of ravens and Arnold Vermeeren of the bicycling "lady in grey."
