Sleep/Echo/Song, Dan Beachy-Quick

Ninth in the series is Dan Beachy-Quick's Sleep/Echo/Song. This chaplet mixes lyrics and lullabies written after the birth of the poet's daughter. An excerpt:

When a child I thought myself
A thought--
Then thought became my home--

When thought became my haibt
The ocean grew
Absent above the stone

DAN BEACHY-QUICK teaches in the MFA Writing Program at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. He has two books: North True South Bright (Alice James) and Spell (Ahsahta). A third volume, Mulberry, will be published in the Spring of 2006 by Tupelo Press.
