The lives and writings of Francis and Clare are the very stuff of poetry. As the poems in this anthology demonstrate, Francis and Clare are icons that call from poets, ancient and new, songs of homage, songs of veneration, songs that try to understand something of the mystery of their love of God and all God's creatures...
- From the Foreword by Murray Bodo, O.F.M.
Francis and Clare in Poetry: An Anthology is a comprehensive collection of poems written by and about Saints Francis and Clare. The poetry in this anthology is as timeless and memorable as the masters who wrote them.
