Here is a book of poems and little stories that all have to do with a sense of awareness before birth-a new genre? Eurythmist Eve Olive offers us this remarkable treasury of verse and story that gives a view of life reaching beyond the usual boundaries. The writings stretch across the centuries, from Rumi and Wordsworth to contemporary poets both well kwn and less kwn, each with a unique view of this mysterious event that brings us into being. Here are voices-the voice of the mother, the voice of the father, the voice of the child-speaking forth in English and nine other languages about a journey experienced by all but remembered by few, translated and woven into a fascinating tapestry. The perfect gift for an expectant couple or a new grandparent, this reflective and inspiring anthology is truly a gift for all of us, who have shared the great experience of birth.
