The Noise of the Rain

"As quiet as a moment just before sleep, Sarah Plimpton's 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
