The Noise of the Rain
"As quiet as a moment just before sleep, Sarah
poems are like preludes to dreams. The “everyday”
happens daily, but it is also rare and precious in Ms.
Plimpton's transparent telling."
-- John Ashbery
"The power of Sarah Plimpton's poetry lies in the truth of
what is not said. Her silences are eloquent.
In [The Noise of the Rain], she writes with passion and accuracy,
and yet with veneration for mystery, leading us to discover
the fullness of sun, air, and sky, and things of the earth we
never knew were there."
-- Grace Schulman
