The Ancient Murrelet

AUTHOR

MORE INFO

In this poetry chapbook Keith Taylor explores the meaning of home and the challenges of being separated from it. Nostalgia is not sentimentality, but "the sickness that comes from longing for home." Keith draws on his travels in younger days through Europe and Asia, the people he would meet, and connects them to where he lives now, to Michigan, its wildlife and the cycles of nature. The Ancient Murrelet is a bird not commonly found in these parts, but can sometimes get blown far from its home.
