Poetry. "RIPE, a strong first collection, is about as close to the earth as poetry can get. It is filled with loving awareness of the poet's immediate world, and all that lives for and around him. All I ever wished for,' [Davis] writes, was the light of fields in late August, / third mowing just cut, / old apple trees left behind.' All we wish for is poetry as sensitive and moving as RIPE gives us"--Lucien Stryk
