Mr. Taylor is a like a line of choice vintages that this reader wants to savor slowly. One small poem can be a universe or an afternoon of tiny but essential details. He is a master, or toured.

The poems in Crooked Run arise from the landscape, people, and history of a small patch of rural northern Virginia that was once Henry Taylor's home. Taylor moves back and forth over several centuries telling the stories of Loudoun County, part of which is watered by Crooked Run.

As some have noted, these poems certainly seem influenced by Frost and echo Wendell Berry. Sometimes the "blank verse" becomes a bit too prosy for me, but the emotion and subtle imagery is never prosaic.

This book also contains poems concerned with the unavoidable changes people must go through in life, a theme which dominates many of Taylor's verses.

A friend of mine in Newberg recommended this book, a commendation sent back along the Oregon Trail to its roots here in Saint Joseph, Missouri. Any suggestion that travels that far is generally one worth taking note of and such is the case here.

There's a hint of Robert Frost running through the pages, with an open fondness for its agrarian subject matter. The poem stories are engaging with some having hints of legend but not stretching facts so far that the truth gets tampered with. There's some humor and some sadness, sometimes in the same poem. Henry Taylor's pictures of his grandfather are particularly engaging and he manages to merge description and conclusion in ways that help you enjoy the traveling through the poems. His language is generally understated, letting the scene and story take precedence.

These are not the rants of urban anger or the heart-mopping plaints of the dispossessed. They are the calm and gentle voicings of a man appreciative of roots whose trees are long gone. It's a fine book for people with at least a fair background in reading poetry but not likely to have much appeal for those who prefer greeting card verse. If you're looking for something to fit nicely with Carol Steiner Rice on the coffee table, well, this ain't it.

If, on the other hand, you'd like a quiet walk in the country and time to meet some neighbors you didn't know you had, I think you'll enjoy these poems.

"He came here, had his life, and as his last strength goes,
the little branch keeps washing over algae-laden stones."

How simply to tell the story of our mortality and of the near immortality of the flowing of the natural world around us.
