Comments on Rain Shadow

"The poems come from solitude and close study of the immediate world with things in it, living and dying.  Richard Taylor makes this exalted state seem perfectly natural."       

- Maurice Manning

" Rain Shadow contains some of Taylor's strongest work. And though it's his nature poems I love best here, there are pleasures on every page."

- Jeff Worley

"This book explains much, / including how each of us / becomes each. The mortality of people, the immortality of suffering. The interaction of shadow and light."

-Katerina Stoykova-Klemer
