The poems proceed through careful scrutiny: one pays homage to a newt; another seeks theology in a hardware store's shelves; and the final, fable-like series here wittily reinterprets newspaper headlines ("Nets Halt Suns")

Divided into five sections, Water Walker blends the mundane with the mystical. From sleeping fish to Marco Polo to a tortoise who dispenses unique advice to a bride on her wedding day, these poems integrate fables, nursery rhymes, hymns, and songs. In 19 Masks for the Naked Poet, the human soul reveals itself, as we remove the disguises that bind (and blind) us to everyday life. Doors become mirrors and husbands float above their marital beds as Willard explores themes of family, love, spirituality, politics, and immortality. Her poet experiences everything from the sacred to the profane, from photographing his heart to meeting God in creations that are enchanting and surreal.

Nancy Willard, the award-winning, versatile author of dozens of volumes of children's fiction and poetry, also wrote novels, poetry, short stories . From a very early age, Willard was drawing and creating her own stories, influenced largely by the books she was reading: the stories of Lewis Carroll, and the fantasies of George MacDonald and L. Frank Baum. To me, these books were as exotic as the descriptions of court life in 'The Sleeping Beauty' or 'Cinderella,'" Willard wrote in an article for Writer magazine. She took the fantasy of her idyllic summers and her readings and blended them with the pragmatism of the scientific discipline she received from her father.
