Summary Kaleidoscope is the first in a series of ten volumes to be published over the next ten years as a complement to an online hypermedia edition of the Collected Works of P.K. Page. Listed chronologically by date of composition, the poetry in Kaleidoscope is fluid, wondrous and technically exquisite, drawing on subjects great and small, and it offers a comprehensive look at one of Canada's most beloved and brilliant poets.
Seraphim In the dream it was the seraphim who camegolden, six-wingedwith eyes of aquamarineand set my hair aflameand spoke in a language which written down -- an elegant script of candelabras and chalices -- spelled out my name but it was not my name The mornings following were bright as wingssky's intricate cirrusthe feathers under his wingsthe wind's great rushthe bladed beat of his wings Mare's tails traced the passage of his seraphic chariot Hummingbirds ruby-throated roared and brakedin the timeless isinglass air and burned like coalshigh in the fronds of a brass palm sunbirds sanggirasoles swung their cadmium-coloured hairand I heard the seraphim telling once againthe letters of my name but my name was lost in the spoken syllables by Summer, 1976 1997.
Note P.K. Page wrote some of the best poems published in Canada over the last five decades. In addition to winning the Governor General's award for poetry in 1957, she was appointed a Companion of the Order of Canada in 1999. She was the author of more than a dozen books, including ten volumes of poetry, a novel, selected short stories, eight books for children, and a memoir, entitled Brazilian Journal, based on her extended stay in Brazil with her late husband Arthur Irwin, who served as the Canadian Ambassador there from 1957 to 1959. A two-volume edition of Page's collected poems, The Hidden Room (Porcupine's Quill), was published in 1997. In addition to writing, Page painted, under the name P.K. Irwin. She mounted one-woman shows in Mexico and Canada. Her work was also exhibited in various group shows, and is represented in the permanent collections of the National Gallery of Canada, the Art Gallery of Ontario, and the Victoria Art Gallery, among others. P.K. Page was born in England and brought up on the Canadian prairies. She died on the 14th of January, 2010.
