A gentle yet keen humor emanates from the stories there poems tell and the stories’ revelation of how ‘pain abrades into self-knowledge. ‘nothing’ is life, love, death.

Full of music and evocative word play, Veronica Patterson's Swan, What Shores? offers alluring poems varied in form and inventive in approach. In language that is both precise and lyrical, Patterson's work, like much of the best poetry, plumbs the human condition with depth, wit, and, above all, compassion.

The poems offer fine surprises, from the lyrical litany of "The Riddle of My Want" ("the stride of your eyes / a summering of skin") to the unusual elegy "Three Photographs Not of My Father" to the mysteries embodied in "Where Are My Swans?": "All movement in their dreams is theirs / that glide-without-haste, for what core of the universe / has to hurry?"

Swan, What Shores? marks the blossoming of a major poetic talent.

just one girl
This is a book of poems to buy for everyone you love. Veronica Patterson is clearly a poet who cares deeply for the natural world and for our human frailties and impossible strengths. Her images are deep and evocative, as in her poem "Of These Feathers"--"the loon's cry pouring liquid zero/through night and flesh clean/to the edge." These poems are both brave and careful and when they go to that edge, they do so with breathtaking clarity.
Umor
Delicate strength, metaphoric clarity, refreshing sorrow, rueful humor, unwitting beauty. No terrain is foreign to this poet. With charm, grace, and insight, Ms. Patterson tackles the familiar, whittles away the confusion, and leaves the reader with the startling truth. Thoroughly enjoyable.
