“Allison Grayhurst gives us beautiful thoughtful imagery that is divine, devoted, full of passion and sometimes some darker themes. Her lines such as ‘All the while the / stars melted’ will enrapture poetry readers. Her lines and verses present a strong voice. Some poems are philosophical, some are pastoral, but all are cleverly written. This collection seems to affect an introspection asking readers to consider their own humanity. The book is presented in two sections that compliment each other well. ‘The Earth becomes a song,’ another line from the book declares the author’s talent, value over everything else for poetry,” LB Sedlacek, Pegasus Literary.
