Zwerglipatch is an ornamental garden on Long Island. In this volume, an extended string of very short poems chronicles the days between the end of winter and the beginning of summer with the appearance of the first blooms, the nesting birds, and the chores attendant with gardening. Sprinkled throughout are the author's attempts to deal with an attic full of his family's history: old letters, memorabilia, a boyhood in New Hampshire. A trip to the Grand Canyon helps put this little garden patch in the proper perspective and time—always time—weighs heavily and makes its presence known. It is a charming read illustrated with over 150 colorful and dynamic photos of the garden in bloom. It is a tale of coming to terms with the natural world and the shared history buried deeply within each of us. A short video of the garden is included by way of introduction.
