by Conny Schaflander

If there is a place where the patina of time ages something to its perfection, perhaps it is in this slim volume of Conny Schaflander’s stirring poetry. While Only Cold Cold Fire lay dormant for over forty-three years since its original publication in 1963, her now grown children, recognizing the uniqueness of their mother’s work, have rekindled this slumbering work of art. This book honors the integrity of the original work, offering us a glimpse into the timelessness of an enduring talent that lives on.


Only Cold Cold Fire, written in 1963, garnered significant public attention culminating in a Pulitzer Prize nomination. The author died in 1979, leaving volumes of unpublished writings, mostly poetry. Schaflander lived a vibrant life rife with disappointment, sadness, betrayal, love and joy reserved for the human condition. However, what she did with those commonplace emotions was to spin them into a lexicon of gold, offering the reader a chance to have the light of her words, of her poetry shine on their darkest corners. Conny Schaflander remains an artist worth recalling, worth rereading, worth remembering.
