"David Radavich has given us a thought-provoking and intriguing volume. Many pieces contain fine music that glows with reading aloud. The initial poem, 'Refugee,' finds us where we inevitably are - By the Way. The final 'Sea-Canticle' is not an end, but another beginning. The stanzas in 'Kansas Canticle' are crisp as starched and ironed linen, intense as Willa Cather's poignant short story, 'A Wagner Matinee.' In 'Egyptian Days,' the reader is brought so onto location that the exotic spicy air is pungently present; wind in the palms almost audible. The love poems are fresh, still in bud, waiting for the reader's mind to tease them open . . . Here is a book challenging to the thoughtful and educational to fellow poets. An excellent purchase."
