    Praise for David C. Ward 'These graceful, powerful poems catch the reader’s attention at every turn. Memories of family, flashbacks of place and deft images of civic life grow through craft and music into powerful self-questionings about purpose, mortality and even art itself. This is a memorable and moving book and these are poems to savour and re-read.'
