A solemn heron, a melodic blackbird, a fluffy chickbirds have inspired wonderful poetry. The fine feathered poems collected here celebrate birds: the wonders of flight, the miracle of nests, the magic of song. Rich with the words of such poets as Margaret Wise Brown, Edward Lear, and Kristine O’Connell George, this anthology has been compiled and beautifully illustrated by renowned artist Kate Kiesler. Her vividly painted birds and stunning landscapes make this unique collection soar.
From barn-swallows to mockingbirds, and eggs to baby birds, Kate Kiesler's outstanding oils add graceful complement to the poetry of Margaret Wise Brown, Carl Sandburg, Elizabeth Coatsworth and others in Wings on the Wind: Bird Poems, a companion volume to Fishing for a Dream: Ocean Lullabies and Night Verses.
