    "Another Anti-Pastoral", the opening poem of Forest Primeval, confesses that sometimes "words fail". With a "bleat in [her] throat", the poet identifies with the voiceless and wild things in the composed, imposed peace of the Romantic poets with whom she is in dialogue. Vievee Francis' poems engage many of the same concerns as her poetic predecessors - faith in a secular age, the city and nature, aging, and beauty. Words certainly do not fail as Francis sets off into the wild world promised in the title.
