[How to order]



With this volume of poetry, the author's first to appear in print, Patrick Healy makes an astonishing entrée on the poetic stage. The 30 poems collected here range in form from the classical to the experimental but are untited by a common theme, that of  earthly passion and love's contingencies, sharing a superbly poised tone of gentle melancholy.
