|Book Review||Lee’s poems are intimate, introspective, and friendly. The collection invites; at once you feel a resonance with lines such as, “For this is, / time of rest, hour of tenderness / and the sleeping loved ones.” Rose is a collection that undertakes themes of familial and romantic love, heartache, and ultimately peace in being. Lee’s use of humor, of warmth, of closeness, allows the reader to develop a bond with the speaker that grows page by page. What makes this collection truly unique is that bond that forms between speaker and reader so akin to becoming friends over shared experiences, over coffee. “And what was far grows near, / and what is near grows more dear.”|
