As I read
One Thousand Gifts
, I kept thinking of Walt Whitman’s hauntingphrase, “Finally shall come the poet.” It’s a rare gift that can render bothlife’s everyday intimacies and the heart’s broken rhythms in language at oncelucid and lyrical, but Ann does it without seeming to try. And most of all,best of all, she employs that language to tell a story of a life her own — transformed by the simple act of giving thanks. Finally comes the poet.
