A reissuing of One for the Rose, a collection of poetry by Philip Levine.

Levine brings a gentle narrative observation to his poems, simple scenes that reveal the power and mystery of the everyday, sometimes in memory, sometimes lamenting, sometimes rejoicing... "...Instead I was born/ in the wrong year and in the wrong place,/ and I made my way so slowly and badly/ that I remember every single turn,/ and each one smells like an overblown rose,/ yellow, American, beautiful, and true." (Brian)
