    The Charmer’s Box: Poetry

    Edith Tiempo

    Winner, National Book Award, Poetry, 1993
    “My mother (Edith L. Tiempo) writes poetry much in the same way the violets in her garden grow—and the other living, well-loved things in her care, as well: the furious secret mysterious processes taking place unobtrusively underneath the carefully tended balance of sun and shade and a gentle hand, with logs of open space. At marvelously unpredictable intervals, my mother’s poems appeared, breaking into life with a certain wondering silence at the heart of each of them, and no distracted, inattentive look to signal their coming. There’s a singular joyfulness in this collection that is its best achievement.”—Rowena Tiempo-Torrevillas
