Maiden Voyage – Marquette Poets Circle
Congratulations to the Marquette Poets Circle.

While they did not receive the award, they are honored by this unsolicited request by the Library of Michigan. Copies of “Maiden Voyage” are now in the Library of Michigan catalog and in many libraries across the U.P.
Housing For Wrens – Edward Morin
In Housing for Wrens, Edward Morin’s new chapbook and third collection of poems, “housing” represents shelter, home, and the act of caring for them. His poems feature birds and animals whom the poet takes as seriously as they take themselves. He seeks to be in touch with himself and other people, knowing kinesthetically what takes place in the world. The cover art is a plate from John James Audubon’s Birds of America.
“Edward Morin has assembled lyrics and narratives touching on subjects you and I like to read about. The exquisite title poem prepares us for engagements with blue jays, bank swallows, wood thrushes—and also the pleasures of singing, fishing, even of aging. The language is to be savored and the hard-won wisdom taken to heart.”
— Laurence Goldstein, poet and former Editor of Michigan Quarterly Review
The book is available from Cervena Barva Press in Somerville, MA 02144, at http://www.thelostbookshelf.com/cervenabooks.html
