In 1990 Louise de Kiriline Lawrence celebrated her ninety-sixth birthday. The richness of her detailed nature observations and her exceptional use of the English language have attracted an international following.
Dr. Robert Nero, a noted ornithologist, demonstrates his admiration and affection for this remarkable woman through his environmentally sensitive and insightful poetry.
"Robert Nero etches with a loving hand – spider webs, fallen feathers, insect wings – significant encounters with the beauty of ’ordinary’ life. He teaches us to see."
