Words For My Weeping Daughter

Dorothy Alicia Farmiloe

Illustrations by Peter Schwarz

THESE HIGHLY EMOTIONAL, INTER-RELATED POEMS (including the nine part "Letter to Linda") question death's abrupt intrusion into a family's tranquility. The northern scape, always dominant and rarely impersonal, becomes a powerful metaphor through which her themes are explored.

This is Dorothy Farmiloe's eighth volume of poetry.


Dorothy Alicia Farmiloe
