Poet Jacqueline Moore presents her collection, CHASING THE GRASS. In conversation with former Poet Laureate of Maine, Betsy Sholl

In CHASING THE GRASS, 92 year-old poet Jacqueline Moore brings a lifetime of experience to the great concern of our time, the fate of our endangered world. Her poetry speaks to natural beauty and its loss, to the power of ancient mythologies of place, and to the vulnerability of the smallest of creatures with whom we share the earth.  Fierce and subtle, whimsical and compelling, these are poems that, in the words of Maine’s former poet laureate Betsy Sholl, “offer us a vivid world, one well worth preserving, worth opening our spirits and changing our ways for.”
