Those I Guard
Kirchwey inspects moments of experience and insight, bringing into careful focus an aquarium, a jewelry display case, a walnut, a childhood classroom, a fire hydrant, a barber shop, an Alpine landscape, seaweed in moonlight. Ancient Greece and the Bible contend with modern street scenes, and history and the passing of generations accompany the present moment. With gentle humor and the seriousness of the timeless, he plumbs sensuous detail for hidden meaning - the more we examine the lines and images that result, the more light they shed.Those I Guard is a beautiful book and an important contribution to American poetry.
