A poignant collection of poems exploring the experience of having a human heart, with its mixture of spiritual and worldly yearnings, wonderings, pleasures and pain. "The title of Amanda Leigh Rogers's book is apt...a part of her winged skyward, another committed (ravenous even) for human touch, for common things. Certainly these poems are well crafted....But beyond all devices, there is (as she says) a river in her mouth. Her good listening to water and leaves and birdsong and to human cries, together with her fine tuning to our mortality, has rendered her own tongue true and eloquent." -from the Foreword by Paul Matthews, author of Sing Me the Creation and Slippery Characters
