The poet’s childhood memories focus in on incidents and objects anybody with a memory can share, but when she presents them they appear as clear flashes of her own past. She loves nature in all seasons. She writes with all her senses, sharing with the reader the odor of bread, the sound of dogs at dawn, the taste of good food in Paris and bad food in Paris, the feeling of hands roughened by milking cows. She loves soil. She reinvents familiar fairy tales. She writes of magic, and it’s magical. She loves language, dreams, fantasies, and fables.
