As Heard on The Daily Gardener Podcast:
A Small Porch by Wendell Berry
This book came out in 2017, and the subtitle is Sabbath Poems 2014 and 2015.
Over three decades ago, Wendell Berry started spending his Sundays in nature, when the weather allowed,
“walking and wandering around familiar territory, seeking a deep intimacy only time could provide. These walks sometimes yielded poems. Each year since he has completed a series of these poems dated by the year of its composition.”
The New York Times bestselling author of Paddle Your Own Canoe, Nick Offerman, raved,
"[Berry's] essays, poetry, and fiction have fertilized a crop of great solace in my life, and helped to breed a healthy flock of good manners, to boot.”
This book is 80 pages of grounded and incredibly moving poetry - inspired by the natural world.
