From HiLo to Willow Pond
From HiLo to Willow Pond: New & Selected Poems
Daniel Thomas Moran
“From HiLo to Willow Pond” is a substantial collection of over 90 strong poems by Daniel Thomas Moran, former Poet Laureate of Suffolk County, New York.
Some of Moran’s poems speak to me at once. His pen flows from his life line.
Dan Moran can truly see a world in a grain of sand. His poems will begin with a sharp, focused vision and then proceed to learn (and to teach us) some small but important truth about ourselves. For all the hints at larger implication, though, Moran never loses his grip on the natural world he touches. So his poems may brood on our common fate, but they never give up on hope. Reading these poems is a way of refreshing the mind, and understanding ourselves, with pleasure.
This is the Moran collection we’ve been waiting for: the poet in his prime, undiminished in capacity for a wonder informed by intelligence and compassion, refined funk, and soupy glitz in a lot of awfully fine poems.
