Pieces: A Year in Poems by Anna Grossnickle Hines

With beautiful poems and quilts, the author takes us through the four seasons.

What I thought: The poems are lyrical, thoughtful, and at times, surprising. The quilts are intricate, fantastic, and just right for the poems. My favorite poems are "In March," "Misplaced," "To Each His Own," "Pageantry," and "Silhouettes."

See also Winter Lights: A Season in Poems and Quilts (2005) where Hines celebrates winter and all its holidays. My favorite poem in that collection is "Fireplace."
