Like Francis Ponge and Rainer Maria Rilke, Richard Foerster is a poet of great patience, seeing into objects–be they tulips, fiddleheads, wood ducks–and capturing their deeper energies. R.T. Smith says, ". . . with a gardener's faith in precision and abundance, Richard Foerster applies his considerable knowledge and compassion to matters of politics, science, literary history, flora and fauna, exile, death, disease, and survival, always bringing the marginal and eccentric to the center of our attention. His poems engage us with their beauty and call us back with the wisdom of their enthusiastic ceremonies."
