Poetry. "In GARLANDING GREEN, Christine Aikens Wolfe summons worlds of green and the green of creation with a sense of folk wisdom. She writes of relics, spells, and invocations: 'Pour the dregs of your wine down a rock. / The next time you visit the woods / you may find fuzzy moss.' With a love of half rhyme and rhythm, these lively poems call upon the reader as spirit maker, worshipping at the daily altar of solitude and kinship: 'Life is a stew... Maybe I'll clamp down / and chew my wrist, hide in this cave a while."—Jan Beatty
