The Orchard Street Press is pleased to announce the release of A Flash of Yellow Wing, the engaging new poetry collection from Frank H. Coons of Arvada, Colorado.

Wendy Videlock, author of Nevertheless, describes A Flash of Yellow Wing as “a collection infused with the passage of time, the pursuit of beauty, and the imperative nature of birdsong, this new book by Frank Coons is a delight. It pays lyrical homage to the animal world, the power of observation, and the workings of the inner landscape.

Lew Forester, author of Dialogues With Light and the winner of the 2018 Malovrh-Fenlon Poetry Prize, observes, “In A Flash of Yellow Wing, Frank Coons’ expertise as veterinarian and birder informs his poetry in delightful and surprising ways. It’s as if he hands us field glasses to look closer at the natural world, turns our ears to a music we’d nearly forgotten. Coons’ poems enlighten as they entertain with lyricism, striking images, and astute language. To echo a line from “A Morning’s Call to Prayer,” this collection has ‘wings enough to lift, light enough to soar.’”

A Flash of Yellow Wing is available, both online and via the mail, from:
