Against the flight of spring by Allan Briesmaster( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Through a dazzling variety of poetic forms and styles, this book restlessly explores such themes as identity, personal growth, love and friendship, Canadian landscape, climate change, visual art, and the roots of poetry itself, in moods of anxious and impassioned questioning, deep affection, dread, awe and grateful praise. This is acclaimed poet Allan Briesmaster's most formally inventive, most philosophical-minded and most searchingly personal book to date
Jumping in the asylum by Patrick Friesen( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Wide-ranging in subject, deeply intuitive and layered in style, influenced equally by the cadences of jazz and by the Bible, the poems in jumping in the asylum will stand out among this distinguished author's strongest work"--Publisher

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A love-you-love-you-not daisy petal game for the 21st century, And the Cat Says & is a whimsical, delectable treat; a poetry collection which weaves in some strange haircuts, flying carpets and two sets of twins. Oh, and did we mention the horses?
Beyond Mudtown by Rob Rolfe( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mudtown was a working-class neighbourhood tightly wedged between once busy docks, factories and the escarpment along the east shore of Owen Sound Bay. It was regularly inundated with mud during spring rains. Beyond Mudtown, Rob Rolfe's third collection of poetry with Quattro Books, is an imagined visit into past and present-day Mudtown, the Saugeen (Bruce) Peninsula and places beyond
Night-eater by Patricia Young( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Here is the work of a masterful and much-honed poet at the peak of her powers. Sharp and strong as steel blades, these poems fuse eerie beauty with gleaming wit, and strangeness with tenderness. In showing the intersection of the mundane and the domestic with the uncouth and uncanny, the author lives up to such praise as "an artist & whose sensitivity to language is characteristic of the truly great in poetry" (R.W. Stedingh) and "Young moves in and out of time and worlds, never flagging or faltering and takes the reader with her" (Susan Musgrave). These are "poems to understand life by" (Rick Gibbs)

Rough wilderness : the imaginary love poems of the Abbess Heloise by Rosemary Aubert( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rough Wilderness chronicles one of the most famous tales of love, betrayal and redemption. Heloise and Abelard were medieval scholars whose taboo-breaking affair shocked clerics and fellow scholars and assured the star-crossed pair a place in history. These poems are contemporary in subject and tone, but also explore some of the more complex modes that have come down to us, including sonnets, pantoums, villanelles and others
The escape artist by Anita Kushwaha( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Escape Artist is the story of Nisha, a nine-year-old Indian-Canadian girl whose vivid imagination keeps her entertained in the loneliness she experiences as an only child and one of the few children in her neighbourhood. After her grandmother dies, her aunt Neela comes to live with Nisha and her parents. Neela suffers from severe post-traumatic stress disorder after having witnessed the death of her father when she was a girl. Neela and Nisha bond over their active imaginations, dreaming up adventures together in the room Neela all but refuses to leave - until an unexpected emergency."--Publisher's description
Little empires by Robert Colman( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Through the rapidly altered perspectives of romantic relationship and the demands of economic recession, Little Empires pursues what it means to own your changing landscape. In a deft and pithy, elegantly nuanced and urbane style, Robert Colman charts awareness within our fragmenting society, where Tweets drown the present tense, and "purpose" loses its hold on sense. Out of it all comes an enriched appreciation of human connection
Fermata by Dennison Smith( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The poetry of Fermata, like the pause or hold in music which the word signifies, conjures the audible spaces between notes and the suspended moment. As the author puts it, this is "terse but lateral but lyrical writing." Her words "are always on the threshold of becoming solid entities. In Fermata, the pitched sound, held indefinitely or paused indefinitely, is the mind feeling the restless body, the migrations of geese or memory."
Hermit thrush by Mark Frutkin( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The unquiet by Ian Burgham( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a collection inspired by Coleridge's doctrine of bringing the "the whole soul of a man into activity."
