"Baseball season is upon us, and her poem Spring Training, which is dedicated to her husband Victor, always makes me smile and ponder, just as baseball does. Maxine’s devotion to the natural world is always apparent, while her poetry is always aware of its dangers and deficiencies. I also love the political turn her poems have taken in this century." --Micheal HerrmannThis post is part of our celebration of National Poetry Month 2013 for which I asked New Hampshire poets and booksellers to recommend books of poetry by Granite State poets. These titles are generally available from local booksellers and may be held in public libraries as well.
