TO FLY WITHOUT WINGS by Judy Ray
Judy Ray’s new book of poems, TO FLY WITHOUT WINGS, was published by Helicon Nine Editions (Missouri). The poems range from family memories related to a childhood in southern England; experiences of travel and sojourns in such diverse places as Uganda, Australia, and France; concerns for the environment and peace; and moments that illuminate our relationships. Of this book, the poet, Richard Wilbur writes: “Judy Ray is a true daughter of Mnemosyne…Such a power to evoke the past depends, of course, on passionate noticing in the present.” More information can be found at www.davidraypoet.com/JudyRay.
