Tom Crawford Poet Conservationist Presenter- THE NAMES OF BIRDS

THE NAMES OF BIRDS

by Tom Crawford

“If we want to know what sky is, or home, we have to look up- and don’t we have to put a bird in it?” – Tom Crawford

“Tom Crawford is a great presenter.  His generous readings are an example of the fusion he believes in.  You get beautiful poetry, reflections of science and art, ecology, storytelling and always humor – the full effect.  For Tom it’s a formula that allows us entrance into an embrace with world we were given.  THE NAMES OF BIRDS is nothing less than a tome of blessings.” – Frank Boyden, FOUNDER OF SITKA CENTER FOR ART AND ECOLOGY: Oregon coast

“In Tom’s poetry birds weave theselves powerfully into the fabic of critical moments, so that talking about birds provides a winged way of talking about a broken love, a broken world, an angelic visitation, a harrowing insight.  Tom is wonderfully lyrical and can often zap you with a few daft lines.” – David James Duncan, author of THE RIVER WHY, BROTHERS K, RIVER TEETH, MY LIFE AS TOLD BY WATER.

“Tom Crawford is a brilliant and exhilarating poet.” – Jim Harrison, author of IN SEARCH OF SMALL GODS, LEGENDS OF THE FALL
