Twenty Years on Graysheep Bay
Through a variety of literary genres–half of which consists of poetry, the other half a mixture of short stories, essays, dialogues, letters, even lists–this book digs into the human interface with one of the largest estuaries in the world. The Bay does not represent an escape to Nature. It has always been an integral part of modern development–witness Baltimore and Washington. Man cannot help but be influenced and changed. So can that body of water. Includes Readers Guide.

Until the First Light
The latest poetry collection of Ray Greenblatt.
Man in a Crow Suit
This is a book of poems featuring crows. I like crows because they can symbolize so many things. Ted Hughes wrote about crows in 1970; I have amassed corvine poems over many years and now-fifty years later-publish my book. Crows still abide. Some poems-Crow’s Voice, Crow Highway, Crow In The Garden-are still elusively floating around and I can’t seem to locate them. However, enough poems roost in this little book to stick in your craw. Even their cousin, the raven, sneaks in.
