“How I love the vine that grows beneath the north window,
a vine without much to say for itself,
just a few odd phrases of berries and leaves,
just that.”

Starting with the Vine*

“[Her] poems are well-made and cared for, precisely sung messages from the heart familiar with the ‘injured beauty’ of live, the knife of loss, and the rose of vision…Hasse’s poems travel the common world and make it strangely new, clearly seen, powerfully said.” 

—Kate Green
