The poems reflect the broadest public concerns, yet remain sharply personal and lyrical, even musical. Some sing the glory of our planet's natural systems and the "near-mythological" challenges they face, while others hymn natural places and sounds that bring the reader solace. The exception is the penultimate poem, "By Azure Huron's Shore," a long imaginative leap into the voice of Walt Whitman, as if Whitman had written about healing the global climate crisis instead of healing the nation after the Civil War.
