From back cover:
"What Swenson responds to and values in the world, its essential freedom, is the very quality that is most striking in her as a poet...This is a world looked at through love, through generosity of spirit," writes Susan Mitchell in her foreward to Nature -- poems drawn from nearly fifty years of May Swenson's work, including ten that first appeared in this volume. "Surely no one, scientiest or poet, has seen things...so clearly," wrote the poet laureate Howard Nemerov, "and surely no one has made seeing and saying so nearly one."
