    "Angela Averitt: Intrepid" Here is a distinct voice in poetry, 28 poems, organized according to locale, by one who calls herself a poet of the everyday. Indeed, she is anchored in daily life, as many other good poets are. Emily Dickinson, for one; Seamus Heaney, for another. I would not claim that Angela Averitt has yet risen to their level of achievement, since that would be excessive praise for so few poems and so young a poet. But I sense that she can get there. She writes often about the play of light, and the light of every day, in her work, morphs into the light of the mind. Sometimes, as in "Snow Day," where "thick icy loaves" lay on the window sill, the reader is in the mind of a child. Later on, in "Serene," (one of the best of the collection) the reader encounters a mature heart, at one with nature, riding its cycles, unafraid of the passage of time: "What is left will be our summer without regrets, Will touch our misty trails... More > come fall." Angela Averitt is a poet who I am certain will make herself heard. Shirley Abbott (author of 3 published memoirs and a forthcoming novel)< Less
