Sea Crow Press is proud to present its first offering, Moon Tide, Cape Cod Poems by Mary Petiet.
If you can’t get to Cape Cod, Moon Tide brings the Cape to you!
Horseshoe crabs, ghosts, tree men, black dogs, and daffodils. These characters come alive in Moon Tide, a collection of poems charting the course of a Cape Cod year.
Set against the backdrop of a rapidly changing climate with a dramatic ocean, encompassing the starkest marsh and wildlife, the relationship between woman and dog, and the life of a rooted village told in seasons, each poem is a story about the culture of southeastern New England told through its people and their lives.
Debris from secret shipwrecks, hermit crabs, sailing traditions, and relentless winter cold. This collection is recognizable locally by Cape Codders as their own, and universally by readers through their shared humanity.
before the sandy point
deep in the channel’s hidden canyon,
in a cool damp
where a ribbon of blue
three feet wide
by the moon.
I almost leaped across
but didn’t dare
for fear of falling in.
