Joyce Sutphen grew up on a working dairy farm, and her poems recover this lost world, with all its beauty and order. This collection traces a shift in the rural landscape from horses to tractors, from haystacks to hay bales—and watches as time ages and changes the people who make up the story. First Words is both elegy and celebration—ultimately its center is family, then and now.
