Charming, colorful illustrations accompany mostly short poems by Kunin. Various rhyme schemes are represented. Good as a resource.

During a horse and carriage accident Kumin fractured her neck in two places (C1 and C2). She shouldn't have survived the accident. 95% of the population with similar injuries do not. Doctors went on to tell her that 95% percent of the people who do survive that kind of Type II break are irreparably damaged; paralyzed for life. Kumin defied the odds and not only survived but gained nearly 100% percent mobility. Inside the Halo is a memoir about that journal back to near-normalcy. It is a story of courage and acceptance. Kumin's courage to fight through a long and agonizing period of recovery and acceptance that some scars, mental and physical, remain.… (lisätietoja)

The poet Maxine Kumin, toward the end of her life, writes a diverse book of poems, many of them formal, reflecting on the New Hampshire farmland, nature, politics, birds, horses, her dogs, and her unsettled relationship with old age and death (Getting There is a sonnet about atheists going to heaven. The last lines of Summer Meditation read, "If only death could be/ like going to the movies/ You get up afterward/ and go out/ saying, how was it?/ Tell me, tell me how was it?")

Some of her characters include an anorexic, a Slavic immigrant nursing aid, a rapist and and her dead father, who telephones her on a Sunday Morning: "Pop!" I say, "you're dead!...

She also doesn't shy away from political events. New Hampshire, Feb. 7, 2003 is set in a blizzard, as the poet waits for the Iraq war to begin and remembers the travesty of Vietnam. Another poem is titled On being Asked during a national crisis to write a poem in celebration of the bicentennial of Ralph Waldo Emerson. Appropriate Tools is an elegy and rant, a protest of our decreased liberties and how immigrants are treated — as piercing today as it was in 2005. Women & Horses is an ode to joy and life’s extravagances in the face of barbarity and darkness.

Well worth dipping into again and again.
