Compartments: Poems on Nature, Femininity, and Other Realms ($15 – Click to Purchase, ISBN: 978-1-937536-00-8, Hardcover ISBN: 978-1-68114-184-8, LCCN: 2011912611, 6X9″, 146pp): “Carol Smallwood offers a jewel-chest of small poems, sparkling with observation, wisdom and maturity. Each is so personal that one might imagine her wearing it as an adornment, but reaches into consciousness so as to enrich the experience of the reader. She touches nature gently, as in ‘A Spider in January’ and shares herself freely and colorfully. The collection is a prize and a delight.” –Patsy Anne Bickerstaff
