"At a going-away get together years in the past, Jack Bartlett gave me a gift--a folder of his poems, loved items of his middle and brain tying these elements of his being with these of mine.

In those prayer-poems his phrases carry for us what his middle and brain understand of affection, peace, and grace--and a God who catches up all our hearts and minds in loving embrace."
