About the Book

River Poems is Doug Underhill´s 11th book and his third collection of poems. River Poems unveil sheer joy and serenity of nature that nourishes our human spirit and produces tranquility and respose.

Underhill writes of the natural world as a back-drop, and examines it for deeper meanings to our existence. To read Underhill is to have your senses keely attuned to what is around us. Like the moods of a river, these poems flow through the reader. His eye for detail takes common experiences and elevates them to a higher plain of existence where we are made to pause to feel the rhythms of daily life.

"These poems are beautiful. No tinny cleverness here. They are quiet spells, meditiations on life forces, distance and grace. Listen."
   - Michelle Butler Hallet

"Doug Underhill´s nature poems are refreshing and insightful with an underlying influence of Frost."
   - Wayne Curtis

"Underhill´s sparse use of language indexes small events in the natural world, taking on a universal significance."
   - The Moncton Times &Transcript
