When I Think About Rain by Paul Hedeen

When I Think About Rain by Paul Hedeen
(2009)


In the four sections of When I Think About Rain, poems vary in settings from central Ukraine to the Cedar Valley.  Drawing on religious, philosophical, and personal insights, Hedeen notes that the emotional territory he covers includes “the quiet dignities of love and the raucous indignities of its loss and lack” and ends with “the affirmation that somehow everything is remembered and forgotten.”

Many of the collection’s 37 poems appear in print here for the first time, though others have previously appeared in noted literary magazines including the North American Review, The Northern Line, and The Mid-America Poetry Review.

“The poems in When I Think About Rain move over the terrain of the reader like a complex weather front that first delivers blinding squalls and exhilarating downpours, then gently falling patches of rain that are like weeping.” — Debra Marquart
