Variations on a Natural Theme is bird-watching through the exquisite eye of a poet. This is a book for those who love loons and other birds of the ocean as well as for those who are fascinated by the power of poetry to illuminate the natural world. Each poem reminds us of the sudden appearance and disappearance of beauty—and its endless variations.
