Book of the day 
The Moon Before Morning
by W.S. Merwin






​"Merwin's signature refusal to use punctuation, and the way his push-me-pull-you lines capture the connectedness of time, space and the natural world, are unique in Anglo-American verse. So his new collection would be an event even if it consisted of nothing but fragments. But The Moon Before Morning is a book of drive, finesse and astonishing beauty. Far from fragmentary, it is also substantial, its more than 120 pages divided into four sections. Among its themes are remembering and forgetting, the natural world and love of place."
