Lee Robinson writes poems of immense clarity and conviction. Her generously grounded voice in CREED honors and illuminates richly described encounters and scenes - many gifts for the lucky reader.
Naomi Shihab Nye,
Lee Robinson is a seer. She not only sees the fireflies and the deer, but also the cow patties and the flood waters. She sees the intimate truths involved in loving the people in her world, both the hard going and the pure delight. Whatever she sees enters her poems full-blown - rendered in rich lyrical language and honed by an honesty and wisdom that is by turns forthright, delicate, and transformative. Robinson writes, "The sun, before it goes, tastes every tree on the hill, / lingering as if it will never have its fill." In whatever light, readers will want to linger long over CREED, finding and re-finding discoveries that will shimmer anew with each return.
