Irish poet Greg Delanty presents a series of poems that explore the birth of a child. These poems log the days before and after a child is born, detailing the wonder and trepidation of parents, the growth of the child, and speculation on the soul and spirit. Written from the vantage point of a father-his hopes, fears, awe, and perplexity-these poems register the seen and unseen interconnections of place, people, the natural world, and the continuity of the past with the present and the future.
