Gregory Scofield's Love Medicine and One Song available now at a special price!

Love Medicine and One Song is a deliciously luscious collection of love poetry, blended beautifully with stories of Cree language and culture. In many ways, the book itself is a love letter to the Cree language, which appears in many of the poems' lines. 

In his introduction to the collection, Warren Cariou writes that "Gregory Scofield's work is renowned for its musicality, its deep connections to Cree and Métis traditions, and its sensual descriptions of both the human and the natural world." Cariou enjoins the reader to "read these poems aloud. Tast their syllables on your tongue, feel the rhythms in your body."

Here we find a gorgeous blending of Cree tradition with a love that both transcends and celebrates body and gender. In "My Drum, His Hand" (p. 25),  the poet writes,

over the bones, over the bones
stretched taught
my skin, the drum

softly he pounds
humming

as black birds dance,
their feathers
gliding over lips, they drink
the stars
from my eyes
depart like sun
making way for moon
to sing, to sing
my sleeping

my sleeping song
the sky bundle

he carries me to dreams, 
his hands wet and gleaming

my drum aching
