New poems …

… Poet Robert Hass scales 'Summer Snow' and California's landscapes - Los Angeles Times. (Hat tip, Rus Bowden.)

… the collection’s title, with its balancing of extremes, suggests that larger complications and dichotomies are in play. Death, Hass is telling us, is a season, less the antithesis of life than its conclusion. The act of dying, in other words, is nothing special, nor even necessarily catastrophic — except, perhaps, for those who have been left behind.
