Tony Cosier

Penumbra Press Poetry Series, No. 20

DIVIDED INTO FOUR PARTS, each reflecting a particular geographical region, Landsinger offers a lyrical consideration of the varied cultural, artistic, and literary components which make up Canada. This is the author's eighth book (first with Penumbra) since 1979.

In circles between the core of the toppled fir
And outer circling bark, the thumbprint pressed
With so much patient care expands beyond
The wisp the spider traced its cosmos by,
And I have need of patience to keep still
A drizzling hour to try the bond between
The hieroglyphic of the spiderback,
The web, the rings, the nightfall, my own sense
The infinite is with us near at hand.
