Book of the Week: The Birds That Stay


Beverley George has been a strong advocate for haiku and related poems for more than a decade in Australia. This very brief chapbook (Eucalypt, 2013) gives us a taste of her voice and interests in a very handsome format.


first frost
the birds that stay
the birds that go


autumn reflections
the ochre of rockface
warms the river


Christmas aftermath
the slow uncrinkling
of cellophane



You can read the entire book in the THF Digital Library.
