A magical, whimsical, and heart-soaring collection of angelic poetry from two award-winning literary masters. Acclaimed novelist Nancy Willard and World Fantasy Award and Nebula Award-winning author and editor Jane Yolen collaborate on this magnificent anthology of their original poetry. For years the 2 friends and literary colleagues have shared a mutual fascination with God's winged messengers and exchanged angel poems - some reverent, some witty, some sweet, some biting, and each one a miraculous invention. Now these wondrous flights of angelic fancy are gathered together in a singular collection of breathtaking verse. Rooted in the Christian and Hebrew traditions, these brief, lyrical masterworks celebrate the heavenly beings that have flown through our collective imagination for centuries: Gabriel and the archangel Michael, the fallen Lucifer and the Angel of Death. In rich and sumptuous poetry, the authors muse on angels' flight, feathers, faith, writing on pinheads, and the glory and inconvenience of having wings. To luxuriate in Yolen and Willard's poetic words, ideas, and unforgettable images is to truly fly among angels.
