Just the Caravaggio
Anne MacLeod
Poetry Saltzburg
ISBN 3-901993-00-2

An interesting mix of poems covering a range of subjects - nature -family -rivers - snow...
There's lots to read and re-read and my favourites change with each reading. Today I favour 'Voices on Water' which has a lovely lyrical quality; and 'River' which describes how Anne's small daughter said that she wanted to be a river so that she could explore the world.
