Poetry. "POEMS FROM THE POND is a beautiful, astute collection that from the 'ordinary' extracts the 'extraordinary'! Candice Stover's language is precise yet lush and the fact of a pond in Somesville, Maine, emerges as ever so much more than a fact. Informed by deep gratitude, her poems register a spirit presence that in the many guises of the seasons shimmers with feeling"--Baron Wormser. A lecturer in writing and literature at College of the Atlantic, Stover, is a former reporter for The Boston Globe who spent two years in Shanghai, China. She is also the author of Holding Patterns, selected by Mary Oliver for a Maine Chapbook Award, and Another Stopping Place. Her work was also in the anthology, The Other Side of Sorrow: Poets Speak Out about Conflict, War and Peace.
