Howls from the Land of Enchantment
By Carol Dee Meeks
26 pages, 1st Edition 2006, 4-1/2 in. x 7 in.
Carol Meeks, New Mexico's 2004 and 2005 Senior Poet Laureate, shares the flavor and feeling of the enchanted portions of the American Southwest where she has lived with her husband Pat Meeks, her best friend and soul mate, for more than four decades.
She covers her pages with the spirit of the American Indians whose tribes enriched the ground whereon adorned bows and arrows flew, eagles soared, and buffalo ate grass near teepee's clans. Her touching lines include: I wait to see the buffalo,/ the white one/ when looked upon prolongs kismet. ...These people of conical tents/ aboriginal races/ native in area of birth/ naturalness, primitive,/ say, "It's a once-in-a-lifetime event"/ to see this creature/ who stands five feet up/ from the shoulder/ does not sing to the land/ as the coyote does/ in Kansas wheat fields that appear as gold,/ but grazes corn that raises its ears to God.
