Each of the twelve poems in the title sequence presents a movement of the spirit, from the author's childhood in the west of Ireland, through the death of a wife, to the birth of a grandchild. Arranged in the manner of an orchestral symphony, the sequence traces, phase by phase, the development of a Christian life.
Faith, in its broadest sense, is inflected by imagination.
