Product Description

A season of both growth and of stillness, of hard work in the garden and of relaxing in the cool of the mountains, summer is a celebratory time. Every day matters, says summer. Look around you. Life is starting up again after a long winter and spring, and we find ourselves in a world filled with creatures and plants and shimmers of heat on the subway, with backyard cookouts and ice cream trucks jingling through the neighborhood.

This collection of powerful, stirring pieces from a wealth of sources---ranging from poems composed in eighth-century China to letters from a pioneer woman in the American West, from the Declaration of Independence to Ray Bradbury's musings on childhood summers---invites us all to fully experience the rich and bountiful spirituality of summer.

Contributors include Anne Lamott, Luci Shaw, Ray Bradbury, Mary Oliver, Richard Selzer, Thomas Lynch, Denise Levertov, Robert Clark, Walt Whitman, Barbara Kingsolver, Carl Sandburg, and Jamaica Kincaid.
