Harbors of Light

by Marjorie Agosin


Poetry from White Pine Press
Translated from Spanish

“Harbors of Light celebrates ‘the call of the lighthouse’ in all its many variations. The musical poems in this collection sing the mystical connections between all lighthouses and those who love them. Agosín’s vivid imagery brings to life a world of opposites, ‘serpentine’ dark and ‘light like a promise.'” – Linda Rodriguez
