Poetry that is neither one thing or the other, -- visual, nature poetry, against a background that seems to be New England. An attempt to transpose into verse that ""sense of life in the earth"" in varied forms, -- trees, flowers, the country scene. The images mask some idea, usually that of the passing of time and the mortality of all things. There is a singleness of theme throughout and never very profound feeling underlying the scenic frame. Varied versification, distinguished neither by form nor content.
