Chimes selected shorter poemsJanuary 29, 2018 By Collegeville Institute Michael Dennis Browne Minneapolis, Minnesota, Nodin Press, 2017 Visit this title on the publisher's website. Summer Workshop Facilitator In this volume Michael Dennis Browne has gathered together short poems from every phase of his long career into chapters focusing on childhood, nature, private anxieties and irrationalities, extended family, and other themes variously spacious and personal. Some have the ring of nursery rhymes, others the melancholy lilt of an elegy, the blunt force of an occasional poem by Yeats, or the enigmatic resonance of a passage from Scripture. There are times when a few phrases can conjure an indelible moment of experience, and perhaps an entire universe, though the reader must fill in the blanks. We meet up with such moments repeatedly in the pages of this compact and powerful collection. Like this post? Subscribe to have new posts sent to you by email the same day they are posted.
