In this moving collection, Poet and Author David Craig shares poems from the three companions of St. Francis, stigmata poems from the Fioretti, and sonnets based on the gospel of St. Matthew. Capturing a spirit of celebration and hope, Craigs poems introduce us to genuine and eccentric characters like the Apprentice, who sticks out his foot to trip you as you pass and then will hold his side laughing as you fall, like an insurance salesman from Nebraska. Or, the cab driver with the back-seat fare who asked, So are you going to turn me in, or what?--discovering, weeks later, that the man had stabbed someone. Other poems detail the third shift at a nursing home, the Cleveland Rapid Transit Station, and a lonely Christmas spent with only the company of a remote control.In The Hive of the Saints, Craig creates an atmosphere throughout his poetry that encourages the reader to look inward, and walk a path of spiritual discovery to a more hopeful world.
