A Day's Grace: Poems, 1997-2002
To be given a day's grace is to be granted an extension, a brief stay of a deadline -- one last chance to make good what has been left unfinished. But a day's grace is also the grace that any day brings -- its ordinary gifts that are so easily missed in the crush of a day's business. These are poems that quietly catch us by the sleeve and point us towards those gifts, saying: Look! Look now, before it gets dark.
Poems from A Day's Grace have appeared in numerous publications on both sides of the 49th parallel, including Poetry, The Hudson Review, The Threepenny Review, The North American Review, The Malahat Review, Books in Canada, and The New Quarterly.
