Poetry. Like the wading birds of the title, the poems in this collection
find their sustenance in the ground, tilling the earthly measure, even as
they lift questions toward the heavens. Summoning the pastoral and the
oracular by turns, the poems of SANDERLINGS achieve a preternatural
rapture, both sensual and learned. "What I love about SANDERLINGS, besides
the ripening imagery, is the variety of expression. The poems don't fix on
a single way to regard our sense of living. There's a powerful willingness
to look into the natural diversity of thought and feeling, and Geri Doran's
language is willowy and very fine"—Carol Frost.
