“Jeanette Clough’s poems are inevitably songs of one’s place in the world, of one’s constantly shifting place in both the natural world and the world desired in one’s heart and imagination. Cantatas is a gorgeous and heart-breaking book of poems. This collection is in every way a hymnal of possibility for living in our difficult world. ”
—David St. John
