Body and Echo

Jennifer Burd

Body and Echo book cover image

"Walking Home at Dusk"

Fireflies trail like sparks
from a still-smoldering day.
The crescent moon harvests clouds
while corn falls quiet under evening mists.
Crickets have one thing to say: this, this.

The genius of Jennifer Burd's poetry lies not only in the ways her language inhabits each and every one of her internal and external landscapes, but also in the profound yet playful delight of her responses to, and conversations with, even the smallest details so at home in the universe she inhabits:

... from "In Winter"

I must belong to a land
under hard freeze,

the mourning dove's silence
above the snow calls trees

out of the blue
so I can see the pure

shape of the world,
each day born

unadorned, stripping me bare,
promising everything.
