After many, many steps in our pilgrimage, he now deals simply the sort of present to others. In those prayer-poems his phrases carry for us what his center and brain be aware of of affection, peace, and grace--and a God who catches up all our hearts and minds in loving embrace."

His radiant verses usually echo the playfulness of G. M. Hopkins, the surprising center jolts of Reynolds fee, and the fierce, psalmic inquisitions and jubilations of King David. twelve months of luminous tanagers and hummingbird wings, 'pink moon seasons' and 'hemlock canopies,' nursing houses and Roman villas, squaddies and kids, DNA and melanoma, hearth ants and catfish, artwork and tune, his personal blindness and visionary ecstasies, the deaths of his mom and dad and births of grandchildren; all visible as presents, on his 'peaceful or tumultuous trip' at the 'trail for your love'--encountering God."
