About This Title

In Each In His Season, Pulitzer Prize winner W. D. Snodgrass once again demonstrates the rich versatility of imagination that has made him a major presence in American poetry for more than thirty years. Here are poems of love, the seasons, animals and humans, flowers, and journeys through a carnival of the mind--each helping us to see who we are and why such vision matters.


Anniversary Verses for My Oldest Wife

I vowed and vowed again
I'd marry me no more;
I hadn't met you then.
I reswear all I swore.

Too young to have known better,
You laid down, side by side,
Our differences together:
Your has been; my child bride.

Through ten years you've endured
Me older than all others;
Since aging hasn't cured
Your tastes, stay thou my druthers.

Only our second night
We ended up at last;
This new dog's learned the right
Old dame can fix you fast.
