Leonard Lambert has published six volumes of verse over nearly as many decades, his most recent being Somewhere in August: Selected Poems 19692016 (2016).
The finely crafted poems in this new collection, frequently witty and always somewhat weightier than they would first appear, have almost their own historical presence. Here are the towns and days and people of the poets life gathered together from widely various times and places, in the hope of having harvested from the speeding years some little thing of lasting value.
