About This Title

Anthony Piccione’s poetry is deep imagery at its best and most richly developed. Readers of Robert Bly and James Wright will find and appreciate in Piccione that recognizable voice of everyperson asking the most essential questions, making the most pertinent observations of the human heart in the here and now. Lovers of Chinese poetry will appreciate a modern descendent who, like Li Po, can share a cup of wine with the moon. Robert Bly has written the Introduction to The Guests at the Gate.


For The One To Come

The infant's delicate forehead a beacon of promise,
his perfect human face, all that we are
depends on him, his stare from the other world,
his great, unblinking eyes so new to earth. T

he miraculous one keeps rising among us.
Now do we turn, and rush to prepare the way.
