內容簡介 The third time is the charm for Paul Kosir in his third book of scientifically romantic poetry, Perspectives of Nature Volume 3. The book contains scientifically accurate poems about heat, light, sound, and time that encourage personal feelings, and romantic poems like First Bird Walk and The Towhees of Turkey Hollow that are presented scientifically. The fusion of scientific observation and subjective view is also found in poems that deal with a cricket's life, a monarch's journey, and a water strider's secret. Beauty may be found in the science of nature in the poems Rime Ice and Hoar Frost. Kosir has found the perfect blend of science and romance that delights each palate.In his third book of scientifically romantic and experiential nature poetry, Paul Kosir presents nature accurately without romanticizing it, a characteristic of realism in poetry. Yet his poems encourage personal feeling, a trademark of the Romantic Movement. Though well researched, Kosir's poems are more than rhyming Wikipedia. They have their own voice, their own style. Most of the poems tell a story, with a beginning, middle, and often a surprise or twist at the end. The twist usually arises from taking the perspective of nature, sometimes personifying it as Mother Nature or Father Time, but never anthropomorphizing by giving it the ability to reason or to feel emotion. This allows Kosir to show nature as it really is, not how some wish it to be.It is formalist poetry, with rhyme and rhythm, which makes the poems beautiful to listen to as well as important to hear. For this reason, the lyrical poetry of Perspectives of Nature Volume 3 is best read aloud, when it is open to interpretation, whether serious or light hearted.
