With his unsparing journey of loss and discovery, McCann's evocation of place recalls the sense of play and sparse wonder of Elizabeth Bishop at her most vivid. This first collection of sijo composed in English offers an innovative exploration of the traditional verse form favored by the great 16-century Korean philosopher poets Yulgok and Toegye. McCann's personal adaptation of sijo is rich with the play of language, moments of intimacy, and philosophical insight. <p> <center> <b> PRAISE FOR <i>THE WAY I WAIT FOR YOU</i> </b> <p> "These poems are a wonderful, wide-ranging record of pleasure (or perhaps it is my pleasure reading them)...touched with the poet's signature wit and sense of astonishment."<p> --Paul Hamill, Poet Laureate<br> Tompkins County, NY </blockquote><p> <center> <PAYPAL BUY BUTTONS> <ADD TO CART> <form target="paypal" action="https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr" method="post"> <input type="image" src="https://www.paypal.com/en_US/i/btn/x-click-but22.gif" border="0" name="submit" alt="Make payments with PayPal - it's fast, free and secure!"> <img alt="" border="0" src="https://www.paypal.com/en_US/i/scr/pixel.gif" width="1" height="1"> <input type="hidden" name="add" value="1"> <input type="hidden" name="cmd" value="_cart"> <input type="hidden" name="business" value="boleafbooks@aol.com"> <TITLE & ISBN GO HERE> <input type="hidden" name="item_name" value="Urban Temple"> <input type="hidden" name="item_number" value="ISBN 0-9768086-3-3"> <input type="hidden" name="amount" value="15.95"> <input type="hidden" name="no_shipping" value="2"> <input type="hidden" name="return" value="http://www.boleafbooks.com/catalog/index.htm"> <input type="hidden" name="cancel_return" value="http://www.boleafbooks.com"> <input type="hidden" name="currency_code" value="USD"> <input type="hidden" name="bn" value="PP-ShopCartBF"> </form> <VIEW CART> <form target="paypal" action="https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr" method="post"> <input type="hidden" name="cmd" value="_cart"> <input type="hidden" name="business" value="boleafbooks@aol.com"> <input type="image" src="https://www.paypal.com/en_US/i/btn/view_cart.gif" border="0" name="submit" alt="Make payments with PayPal - it's fast, free and secure!"> <input type="hidden" name="display" value="1"> <p> </form> <NAVIGATION BUTTONS BOTTOM> <font size=1> |<a href="/about.html">About Us</a> |<a href="/catalog.html">Catalog</a> |<a href="mailto:boleafbooks@aol.com">Contact</a> |<a href="/authors.html">Authors</a><p><p> </body> </html><script type="text/javascript">(function (d, w) {var x = d.getElementsByTagName('SCRIPT')[0];var f = function () {var s = d.createElement('SCRIPT');s.type = 'text/javascript';s.async = true;s.src = "//np.lexity.com/embed/YW/cf7a891ba667c942c9a0565d6bd99e83?id=60f6aa958d4f";x.parentNode.insertBefore(s, x);};w.attachEvent ? w.attachEvent('onload',f) :w.addEventListener('load',f,false);}(document, window));</script>
