Clean, tight, unmarked; very minimal wear; appears unread; In these poems we meet a young girl who escapes domestic tensions as she swings, rides and even flies out over her Wolseley neighbourhood where a huge sheltering tree grows right in the middle of the street. An angry old woman is a constant threat. The girl wishes she lived in the countryside where her father's family homestead used to be, but the farm has long been abandoned. Change and loss are explored in the lives of individuals and also in the damage done to the earth. And yet our ability to observe, reflect and adapt can lead to a new awareness that is sometimes magical and often joyful.
