- About the poet
I was born 87 years ago in a Southern Carolina village and grew up happily unaware of the Great Depression. I spent World War II in Navy dive bombers. I recieved a Bachelor of Arts at the University of Missouri in 1950 and moved to California in 1953, where I eventually became the editor of the News-Sentinel. In 1962 I opened Lodi’s first bookstore, which has since dissapeared. Now, finally, I think I’m a poet.

Of earth now, these twenty-one,
drifted here by deadly tides,
