From the author of A Small Cup of Light comes a collection of poetry that presses into the corners of our joy and our despair. By turns provocative, playful, sober, and hopeful, Sojourner Songs is a long-awaited companion on life’s journey and a deep spiritual experience for pilgrims in all walks of life. Ben Palpant’s poetry debut is intensely personal, an intimate exploration of what it means to be human.
From “I Cannot Stop My Singing Heart” to “Despair Has Come,” this collection captures the range of emotions which
characterize our shared experience. Reminiscent of works by Mary Oliver, T.S. Eliot, and Seamus Heaney, Sojourner Songs serves as a reminder of therich tapestry we call everyday life.
