Summary (From the publisher):

In elegaic verses of surpassing beauty, Nicholas Christopher takes us from the lush islands of Hawaii to the streets of Greenwich Village after midnight, from a sparsely attended Las Vegas funeral to a children's tea party. Whether he is describing items lost and found or a woman drowning in a stormy sea, Christopher's poetry is filled with moments of spiritual illumination that confirm his reputation as one of today's most gifted poets.
