She Calls the Moon by Its Name: Poems (Paperback)
She Calls the Moon by Its Name, a powerful and haunting series of poems, follows a nineteenth-century farm woman in spiritual isolation as she finds strength in naming what is alive around her-or even hidden in plain sight. She seeks the names of moons, of animals, of fields and stones, of children and lost babies, and in the process, what is solid and earthborn learns to live patiently with what is not. Longing intersects with duty. Dream life intersects with waking life. The natural weaves with the spiritual. Predictability is swept away as one woman's vibrant inner life quietly explodes to evoke vivid and prophetic changes in her world. Poet and essayist Faye Moscowitz calls these poems "a sublime journey of loss, mourning, and renewal."
