Celebrating the joys of a simple life and all manner of wild things, Robertson breathes vitality and wonder into a love of chickadees, canoeing, and teaching grandchildren to fish.
William Robertson leads us through the beauty he finds within the simplicity of an honest life. His poems explore how his roles as father and grandfather allow him to share his love of the natural world, and his passions ignite, especially when he writes about his love of birds. He is modest in his knowledge of nature, humble in knowing that there is too much ever to appreciate fully when armed with our curiosity alone. And so, he sees himself as a sort of decoy, a lure for wild birds, knowing if he succeeds we might discover what he has discovered: “In the creek, birds I’ll probably never name explain their desire.” He writes as if quiet devotion just might release their thoughts.
This collection is one that will delight Canadian readers, as in these pages we get to know one who has truly loved the smallest and simplest creatures of Mother Nature, and within them found the extraordinary beauty of this land.
