"One can only wish for more poets like David Lee."--"Chowder Review"
Set in the American Southwest, "So Quietly the Earth" is a book of landscape meditations on philosophical, theological and environmental issues. Radically departing from his justly famous narratives of rural life, David Lee weaves the archetypal elements of earth, fire, water, and air throughout his poems as he explores spiritual connections to the natural world.
David Lee, author of 15 books of poems, was named Utah's first Poet Laureate and in 2001 was a finalist for the United States Poet Laureate. A former seminary candidate, semi-pro baseball player and hog farmer, he recently retired as the head of the languages and literature department at Southern Utah University.
