While We've Still Got FeetWhile We've Still Got Feet by David Budbill

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


I love David Budbill's poetry. Heavily influenced by ancient Asian poets such as Han Shan, he writes about the struggles of living a simple, reclusive life while still being drawn to the contemporary world and civilization, fighting the ambitious urge. Simple poems of awesome power and important ideas.

A sample of poems from this book, via the Writer's Almanac:

Winter is the Best Time

The Woodcutter Changes His Mind

Smoke and Ash
