Abstract:

The fascination with versifying stem's from the author's elementary
school years in the Kansas public school system of the 1930s. Although
the early efforts were nothing more than collections of unconscious
iambic and trochaic feet, compliments from teachers, parents, and
friends lent sufficient encouragement to keep the fascination alive.

The present collection consists primarily of the efforts of recent
years, all earlier examples having unfortunately disappeared with the
passage of time. The emotions, the inner and outer aspects of the
author's young life with which these poems deal, were created and
shaped during the Great Depression years of the 1930s. These
experiences, heightened by the memory of the economic poverty and
hardships of his family situation, caused a deep seriousness to
develop in his psyche and most of the poems clearly reflect that.
