melody of you
This is a beautiful volume of poems - some that almost read more like essays - that is approachable and welcoming, even to the reader who doesn't normally read poetry. Pardi's verses are like a walk with an old friend in the warm sun: nostalgic, funny, insightful, questioning and comfortable. His language is tantalizing and at times invites the reader to draw his own conclusions. Nothing is forced - there is no pretension, either in the prose or the subject matter. Pardi gives us lines that appear unassuming, yet linger long after the book is closed.

Like his beloved birds, Philip Pardi's poems dazzle with simple beauty, soar with his economical use of words. He has deftly woven spiritual mysticism in his rhetorical conversations with his infant son, dying father, lovers, and readers. There is a touch of revolutionary fire in his portrayal of falling roofers and Don Pedro. Pardi asks the hardest questions in a gentle, compelling voice.
