In an era of poetic fads, Annabelle Moseley’s chapbook The Moon is a Lemon has a timeless grace. Lovely, accomplished, and full of feeling, her work reminds us of what the best poems do – leave us changed. As she writes in the title poem, “I have touched, / If only briefly, / What I never thought attainable. I have kissed heaven.” Reminiscent of the work of Edna St. Vincent Millay, Louise Bogan, and Sylvia Plath, this is poetry to re-read and savor.

There’s a fine mind behind these lines, and an open heart that is searching. These, I think, are the keys to poetry, and Moseley holds them both in hand.

“I like the honest mystery of things,” Annabelle Moseley tells us. Speaking somtimes as an unrequited lover, sometimes as an awakening goddess, she gives us poems that issue from the darkness of the heart, carry the feel of sand and sea, and offer us a taste of the moon. This miracle and mystery of a voice finding its register, in and out of time and place, delivers a world of promise.
