A Day’s Grace: Poems, 1997-2002

To be given a day’s grace is to be granted an extension, a brief stay of a deadline — one last chance to make good what has been left unfinished. But a day’s grace is also the grace that any day brings — its ordinary gifts that are so easily missed in the crush of a day’s business. These are poems that quietly catch us by the sleeve and point us towards those gifts, saying: Look! Look now, before it gets dark.
