Songs for Dead Children Paperback / softback
Part of the Robert Kroetsch Series series
In a series of poems inspired by Gustav Mahler's Kindertotenlieder, E.D.
Blodgett searches for meaning amidst grief. In the contemplative gentleness of his words, he finds the special light children possess in their state of unknowing as they encounter the world.
These sparse poems move through acceptance and resignation to the solace that exists in the word.
Blodgett's poetry will speak to readers who have experienced loss, are exploring grief, or want to find a way to connect with stillness. as bells that ring throughthe winter airthe clear laughter of childrensings in the treesalmost like brooksbursting in springthe air stands upits joy unboundthe breath of itthe bright birth of stars
