Garden Time
W.S. Merwin

Honored as a "Best Book of the Year" by The Washington Post.

W.S. Merwin (1927-2019) composed Garden Time during the difficult process of losing his eyesight. When he could no longer see well enough to write, he dictated his new poems to his wife, Paula. In this gorgeous, mindful, and life-affirming book, our greatest poet channels energy from animated sounds and memories to remind us that "the only hope is to be the daylight."
