Governor General's Award finalist Lynn Davies returns in a celebration of the enriching power of imagination with Where Sound Pools, reaffirming her reputation as one of Canada's most accomplished young poets. In this much anticipated second collection, Davies awakens a hidden sensory world and beautifully blends strength and understatement, observation and fancy, passion and playfulness. Where Sound Pools is filled with songs for movement -- for old boots, skis, ice roads, a canoe -- and acutely perceptive poems about people in action: children building snow tunnels, Giotto painting a fresco, a parking lot attendant retelling stories heard, each of which acknowledges how breakable human beings are and how easy it is to get lost. Inspired by everyday life, Davies sees the extraordinary in the ordinary.
