Item description for The Rented Violin by Karen Whalley...
The first book by a poet who finds the numinous in ordinary things. At first glance the poems seem simple lyrics of domestic life, but they also take us deeply into the spiritual realm. Whalley shows us how beautiful and valuable are the parts of our lives we tend to overlook.
