Selected Poems

David Solway

A collection of poems selected by Douglas Barbour from Sommer's five previously published books. Also includes four new poems. "I once watched Richard Sommer practicing Tai Chi at sunrise on a summer morning. His carefully choreographed movements were both premeditated and utterly free. In silence his body acted out a rhythm which invoked song. That image—kinetic, rhythmic, pure and solitary—is traced in his best poems." —Douglas Barbour, from the Introduction
