Circumference of Light opens on the poet as he waits for the words to come, as he relives the “Dream of a Dead Son,” recently and suddenly lost. These poems unfurl over four chapters, moving from reflections on grief (“The Quiet Footman”) to meditations on the self (“This Man in the Mirror”); from “Small Praises,” where Noll addresses the modest wonders of the natural world that have always engaged his attention, to “Circumference of Light,” the title chapter which focuses on light as the life force coursing through our veins. Always, there is Bruce Noll, our Whitmanesque narrator studying himself—boy, man, husband, father, grandfather—contemplating both unbearable loss and the many little blessings that buoy us in the midst of grief.
