Pity the poet who writes of salt ponds and claw marks on beech trees with­out the req­ui­site nat­u­ral-world fa­mil­iar­ity. Bet­ter: pity her reader. There is no doubt that Dede Cum­mings’s hik­ing boots have suf­fered the rav­ages of Ver­mont bl­iz­zards and the in­dig­ni­ties of los­ing their way in muddy New Eng­land wood­stocks. Her tech­ni­cally beau­ti­ful, dreamy po­ems span many years of mem­ory and fa­vor the ca­vort­ing of fam­ily life. The founder of Green Writ­ers Press and a book de­signer, Cum­mings at­tended Mid­dle­bury Col­lege and the Bread Loaf Writ­ers’ Con­fer­ence.
