Poems for a Small Park

In this collection by the well-known Edmonton poet, E.D. Blodgett, is an ode to the wisdom and divinity of silence. The poet muses on the quiet of the outdoors and the mysterious relationship that exists between spaces of silence within a city's limits.

Most of the short lyrics that make up this sublime collection were written first in English and French before being translated into Cree, Michif, Chinese, and Ukrainian to reflect Edmonton's multicultural past and present. Together they form a composite view of the people and culture that inhabit the city's natural spaces.
