Award-winning poet Gary Margolis gathers four books of poetry in Raking the Winter Leaves: New and Selected Poems, including a selection of poems from his new collection, The Other Flag. These poems speak from the heart of New England and our nation, from the worldly places and habitats, stripped by war and the heated climate of politics. They speak in a style familiar to his readers of almost fifty years with thoughtful feeling, humor, curiosity and the surprises to which following the threads of a poem’s unexpected, yet inevitable, language can suggest and provide. As he writes in “Consider Yourself,” “As a rule stones will sing, Give what you can, what there is to give, what you have been given,” these poems fold in and blossom, bring us to a falling night and rising day.
