Four Ravens

June 9, 2019: Four Ravens

Poems by Gary Lee Entsminger

“Without pretense, with the clarity of William Stafford, these poems embrace a wide-ranging reach in subject matter expressed lyrically with original juxtapositions of ideas and words. The voice in these poems pays homage to the past, the present.”—Michael Miller, author of Waking in the Dark

“Four Ravens offer a sense of having come full circle—from experience to memory to all we can know of a life.”—Neil Harrison, author of Where the Waters Take You

“Clearly marked, deeply anchored poems—like a good guide, Entsminger makes sure you don’t fall from the stones across the currents. Accompanied by masterly musical diction, so the words’ tunes embed.”—Stuart Friebert, author of Decanting: Selected & New Poems
