Editorial Reviews

Repeatedly I have warned Allen Frost to stay away from our Ohio-there is only so much land to go around for us Ohio poets. And repeatedly he swoops in and collects images real and imagined to make them into his gemlike poems. Okay, I admit it, I like them, delight in their silly-serious tone. And here he includes his drawings and photos to whisper them along into our subconscious forever. Someone should stop him at the border to see if he's taking back these wonder thoughts, only they, like his lake submarine, can't be found. Metal detectors can't catch them because they are but seeds waiting to bloom on his West Coast farm. Heritage poems they are. Allen's writing always dips into the pen of magic, and this book is no exception as he builds visions out of the minutia of our daily life in Ohio or anywhere. We are lucky to have him and his whimsical, zenlike writings. He can come to Ohio anytime. ---Larry Smith, author of "Lake Winds: Poems".
