Building on his well-received book of poems A Willow Grows Aslant a Brook, Aaron Chase Eddington continues to explore the finely observed life in A Prairie Song. Written in the style of classic modern American verse, the poems in A Prairie Song celebrate a life well-lived—and the many forms that a well-lived life can take.
Representing some of Eddington’s best work to date, the poems of A Prairie Song weave the endless mysteries of human existence with mundane wonder at the natural world with both sophistication and simplicity.
