Friends, I'm pleased beyond words to have a poem included in the new Grayson Books anthology Tree Lines: 21st Century American Poems, edited by Jennifer Barber, Jessica Greenbaum, and Fred Marchant. Look at that luminary lineup of poets! Some of the proceeds from sales will be donated to a cause dear to me, the National Park Service Foundation. Here's a little information:

Just in time for Earth Day and Arbor Day, Grayson Books has published Tree Lines: 21st Century American Poems, an anthology that includes work from 130 contemporary poets, including U.S. Poet Laureates, Pulitzer Prize winners, and other outstanding writers. The poems launch conversations about our tender, fierce, and awed relationship to trees in cities and forests, in orchards and open fields. This important new collection reflects contemporary American poets’ heightened awareness of place, close observation of nature, and concern for the earth’s changing climate. A portion of the book’s proceeds will be donated to the National Park Service Foundation.

Edited by poets Jennifer Barber, Jessica Greenbaum, and Fred Marchant, the anthology includes poems by Ellen Bass, Jaswinder Bolina, Victoria Chang, Anthony Cody, Toi Derricotte, Camille T. Dungy, Ross Gay, Joy Harjo, Robert Hass, Edward Hirsch, Jane Hirshfield, Major Jackson, Fady Joudah, Yusef Komunyakaa, Ted Kooser, Ada Limรณn, Esther Lin, Philip Metres, D. Nurkse, Naomi Shihab Nye, Sharon Olds, Linda Pastan, Kay Ryan, Evie Shockley, Vijay Seshadri, Tracy K. Smith, Arthur Sze, Natasha Trethewey, Rosanna Warren, Afaa M. Weaver, and Javier Zamora, among others. Published on Earth Day, Tree Lines is a collection to treasure.
