Product Detail:

Winner of the 2014  IPBA Benjamin Franklin Award
"This book is called Having Listened after one of these elegantly simple,  tender,  attentive poems it might as well also be called Having looked, or maybe having heard, Having seen the task achieved.  The animals and birds and other creatures, the human beings too, in their beauty and their managing of their lives, what they accomplish in patterns of flight or birdcall, in drinking water from a water tank, in the rusting of a fence are given poem after poem, in beautiful quiet rhythms and syntactical managements, such careful and respectful attention, it can bring tears to your eyes."
