Poetry. This collection is grounded not only in those moments of loss that come with age, but also in those moments of realization that there is still a richness in what remains. The poems are interspersed with illustrations of dandelions, their fleeting delicacy a reminder that not everything worth appreciating is lasting. Snyder's poignant words are not so transient.
