SEA SONGS by Myra Cohn Livingston
Kirkus Star


Email this review


Some of the best work of both poet and painter, handsomely presented. Each explores the sea in its many moods, on and beneath its surface. Linking the images are the moon and sun, night and day. Richly colored double-page spreads, with five-line poems and a versicle for the moon or the sun, show the sea in its many manifestations: a home for life, large and small, plant and animal; a stage for storm and calm; a source of work and play for man; and a site of mystery with mermaids, sunken treasure, lost ships and sailors. A beautiful book.
