Winter With Flowers

James Clarke has authored many volumes of poetry that explore his role as a judge, as a father, as a husband, and as a man of conscience in the world. These books have earned him a reputation for insight into the nature of human judgment and mercy, forgiveness and responsibility.

In Winter With Flowers, Clarke turns to more intimate and revealing poems, taking up issues of aging and death, of family and relationship, of doubt and faith, writing himself as a legacy to those who are and were closest to him.
