Author(s): Sarah Day
Grass Notes is a highly crafted poetry collection. Subtle, rich and diverse in subject matter, Sarah Day's poems are linked by cadence and musicality. Time and transience form the sub-stratum of much of the book: the past from the perspective of the present, the present from the perspective of the past (View from a Roman Litter). The poems take into their scope geological time and the enigmatic nature of the present, inviting the reader to ask questions and share in her vividly rendered observations.
