"I don't often mention literary forms," Kooser writes in his brief introduction to Woloch's work, "but of this lovely poem... I want to suggest that the form, a villanelle, which uses a pattern of repetition, adds to the enchantment I feel in reading it. it has a kind of layering, like memory itself."
