my favourite contemporary American poet.

Three books of poems published and that is no mean feat:

John’s beautiful poems cover the whole spectrum… love, hate, war, fantasy, the spiritual and every day life. If you love poetry, you will enjoy these wonderful books of poems

One of John’s latest poems:

four seasons poetry

in the unpredictable spring
the poet writes of rain and birth
welcoming freshness
unfolding everywhere

in the hot summer sun the poet
writes of sweat and stifling heat
lemonade and iced tea
and the faraway sounds
of the ice cream van

when autumn approaches and
death is sure to follow
the poet writes of impending doom
and desperate days to come

but when winter arrives
and sub-zero temperatures set in
the poet remains silent
except when northern winds
or black bird wings
bring back to life
backyard metal chimes
