"Pulitzer Prize winner and best selling poet Ted Kooser calls attention to the intimacies of life through commonplace objects and occurrences: an elderly couple sharing a sandwich is a study in transcendent love, while a tattered packet of spinach seeds calls forth innate human potential. This long-awaited collection from the former U.S. Poet Laureate - ten years in the making - is rich with quiet and profound magnificence." -- from amazon.com

Quiet, simple, and beautiful poems about commonplace objects and occurrences, animals and people. The simple, single-use metaphor style and some of the subject matter is reminiscent of William Carlos Williams. One of my favorites in the collection is about an encounter with an opossum. Lovely.
