“Margo Lockwood’s poems take cues from the Irish poetic tradition and the Chinese in her depiction of nature and her simultaneous pursuit of the heart’s seasons, always listening to the subtext of that dialogue–what Frank O’Connor called ‘the body’s speech.'”

Additional Praise:

“The bete noir lurking behind Margo Lockwood’s title poem is the fear of growing ‘soft in the wrong place.’ No need to worry. These poems…are injected with Lockwood’s ‘waterfall adrenaline,’ the vitality she must have inherited from her ‘ancestor-Irish farmers.’ Their ancient Gift of Gab she has refined into the freshly observed, colorfully detailed, deeply feeling, moving poems that are her gift, a gift to us.”
