"Robert Hedin points us toward the brooding mystery that folds its wings beneath our human, busy, constructed world, the mystery that may open its wings in our vision or our nightmares. And this poet is an accomplished craftsman, using simple language to cast images of great resonance and beauty. His is a powerful voice that tells us what we did not know we knew."
