Book Review: Words under the Words by Naomi Shihab Nye

Words Under the Words: Selected Poems (A Far Corner Book) - Naomi Shihab Nye

Beautiful lyrical poems about a range of topics, many filled with a mysterious poignancy that clutches at the emotions even if the meaning is somewhat obscure at times. These poems entice one to read them again and again. They hint at secrets waiting to be unearthed from the rich words they're planted in.

 

A worthwhile collection from Palestinian-American poet Naomi Nye.
