the wither poems

  Author:   Catherine Edward    
  Publisher:  Acorn Press

the whither poems is a first poetry collection by Catherine Edward, a spunky septuagenarian grandmother. “Whither is an oldish word, with a helpful attitude. I love it for that,” she says. “The overarching theme of the book is ‘that which cannot be’ while admitting to ‘what must be’. It is in the response to unanticipated, uninvited change that one’s mettle is revealed.”

After nearly half a century wandering through the family Acadian forest, Edward has written a book of poetry that reveals nature as a conduit to the heart. Poignantly embedded in the natural world, her poems follow footsteps taken, stories told, the sun & the wind, and where one is bound. Edward’s naturally reflective self has a habit of observing the world around her. She finds it endlessly absorbing and surprising. Its meaning emerges as poetry.
