Jane Hirshfield's poetry asks the reader to slow down and be patient, something I appreciate poetry being able to do in these hectic days. Especially interesting are the "assay" poems scattered throughout this collection; in these, she examines the characteristics of everything from the sky to Edgar Allan Poe to the words "of" and "to."
