   Beautiful, meaningful poetry
I've been listening to CDs that David Whyte recorded speaking to groups where he shares his poetry, his stories, his insights and his wonderfully soft Scottish voice. I am finding that reading his poetry with my eyes and my ears rather than his voice and his interpretation lends for me new depths of personal meaning. Gotta love that! Also, much of the work in this book is set in the Pacific Northwest, where I have lived my whole life, so that the imagery is deep and meaningful for me.
   An uplifting and comforting book to keep at your bedside
I can 't say enough about this precious book of poems and David Whyte's incredible depth of vision. I keep this book at my bedside and often review one or two poems for meditation. I've also recommended this book to those who attend my local poetry group, as well as my friends, especially those who pass through difficult shadows on their life's path... The words of Whyte will surely touch your heart!
   Beautiful accessible poetry
Beautifully accessible poetry, a companion that demands the remembrance of what is true and real. A strong ability to rekindle and strengthen by comforting wonder.
   Yoga students ask or email inquiring to what I read in class: Poems from this book.
I have both the Audible version, which is my favorite book to listen to when I am driving, over and over again. Every time I listen, I discover something new in David Whyte's storytelling. This is one of his favorite books, I read from it in my yoga classes and students always ask or email asking for the source. This is a book by generationless ''. I am in my late 40's, and I found many of his words resonated with me at this point in my life, but also could have felt the same way in my 20's. The writings leave the reader feeling connected and expansive to life. His writings cover relationships, nature, subtle experiences so incredibly human in their nature that we don 't realize what is happening in our hearts, mind and body while we are moving through them. It is clear only after and with reflection, where we become afterward. I highly recommend '' this book.
   A favorite collection from a favorite poet
For the title poem and The Truelove alone, Whyte's work is worth reading.
