The River Doesn’t Stop is beautiful, wise poetry that reveals a poet’s passionate and tactile engagement with life. Whether eulogizing her late lover or her mother, or describing travels to the Met in NYC or the historic streets of Budapest, the wilds of British Columbia or Africa, Blackman’s intimate, sweet poems express a profound gratitude and longing for life. She leads her reader by the heart as in “Things I Never Dared”

“...Exchanging every step 
a daisy for a sock, bluebell for shirt, 
an iris and a lily filled my arms 
by the time I walked into my house 
covered in everything no longer mine 
I owned a whole bouquet of steps 
I was afraid of daring....”
