A striking collection of short poems from acclaimed writer May Sarton After decades of writing flowing lyric verse, May Sarton's style turned to short bursts of poetry. Likening poetry to gardening, she writes, "Muse, pour strength into my pruning wrist / That I may cut the way toward open space." These condensed poems are rife with exuberant impressions of nature and of love. Included are two of Sarton's most acclaimed poems, "Old Lovers at the Ballet" and "Of the Muse."
