** This is to preorder the poetry book Do You Sing Your Own Song? by Mary Earle.
Expected arrival: November 2019
A lifetime of poetry about the land, memories of West Texas, family, and sacredness of life.
When she was a little girl, Mary Earle’s maternal grandmother taught her to listen to the garden in her yard, the creek on the Texas hill country land, the wind in the trees and the stars. Her mother, Mary Colbert, started reading to her as soon as she could sit up, and her mother loved to read poetry out loud. The poems in this book are an offering that comes from years of listening to what the Irish call “the music of what happens.” Mary says, “My hope is that the poems will invite the reader to listen along with me to that music.”
