This little book contains poems that have to be considered exceptional for their gentle glance into human frailty, for their tender scent of faith, no less than for their playful wit. And most of all perhaps, as poetry goes, for their lyricism. The poet, Thomas Dominic Rover, O.P. was a Dominican Priest who taught at Providence College for many years. He died in 1997, largely unsung for his artistry except in the circles of Providence College. Hopefully, this little volume may bring wider recognition to the poetic gifts God gave this faithful priest.
