Sound Barrier: Poems 1982-2002

Maura Dooley

These are tender, lyrical, reflective poems about love, memory and life in the country and the city. Highly recommended to any poetry novice.


You wonder why it is they write of it, sing of it,
till suddenly you're there, nearest you can get
to flying or jumping and your alone, at last,
the bright air

from Up on the roof
