  Emotions, Nature Captured in Verse , 09/27/2007
Reviewer: Nancy Moffett
From “Recipe for a Female Poet” to “Moon Day in Winter,” Ann Work Borger’s new chapbook, “Sailing into Sunset,” captures not only the beauty of the many faces of nature but also the emotions of a woman in middle age and beyond. For instance, in “Erosion” Ms. Borger confronts the passage of time saying, “I shrink so gradually…losing the list of what would bring me pleasure.” “Railroad Crossing” continues the theme of loss associated with aging with repeating refrains of cloudbursts and “the train arriving first,” while the poet’s momentum runs down. Sharp and soft descriptions of nature sparkle in “January Thaw” and “Foot Prints” observing the sights we so often miss as we rush through our lives. Herons, flowers, fields of soybeans and tasseled corn, a watercolor sky…Ms. Borger frames these sights in words that evoke colorful, lyrical pictures coupled with feelings of calm delight. Like the poem that carries the book’s title, Ms. Borger’s work moves the reader smoothly into the sunset, yet, at day’s end, brings her safely back into harbor.
