Foreword by Geoffrey Haresnape.

"Swanson's poems are emblems of a restless, interested, foraging magpie of a mind constantly turning over leaves of words and images and truths, ever primed to pick up the stumbled-upon nugget lying in his path, examining it in the light, to weave lines about it and have a reader's head nodding in agreement, amusement or a richer sense of the ever-changing world around us." Douglas Reid Skinner, poet and editor of Stanzas magazine. 

Archie Swanson is the author of the poetry collections beyond a distant edge, the stretching of my sky and the shores of years. He lives in George.
