Songs for a Beloved Friend
Poems and Essays for the Planet
by Monica Glickman

exploring the spheres, the wilds of nature and the human heart -- in verse

The ties that bind us -- to each other, to our earth, and to the creatures we share it with -- is the subject of Songs for a Beloved Friend. This volume is serious, funny, and quirky, often at the same time. These poems and essays celebrate nature -- human and wild.  Topics include Yellowstone and our national parks, animals, dogs, the spheres of the universe, and the human place among them.

Chapter headings are a set of musical themes:
Natural Themes
Human Variations
Yellowstone Rhapsody
American Melody
Doggie Suite
Animal Chorus
