Carl Van Doren

I have not read, in some time, love poems so authentic and so moving.

Florence Converse

A youthful and lyric strength, deepening to compassionate maturity in the poet’s experience, makes this one of the richest and most adult books I have read in a long time, alive with love, and to be remembered.

John Holmes

In these pages there is an exquisite blending of mind and heart. Clearsighted, compassionate, with a deep feeling for human beings and a ready understanding -- such is the spirit that finds utterance in a volume that the wise will treasure.

Christian Register, 1946
