From the Publisher:

Intimate Snapshots of Tennessee's Famous Landmarks

Poet Pays Tribute to Home State HIXSON, TENNESSEE -It has been said that the most beautiful place in Tennessee during the spring is Reflection Riding-a 375-acre nature park known for its over 1,000 species of plant life and more than 300 wildflower varieties. In Dark Sails in the Twilight,poet Walt Barger invites readers to take a hike in the picturesque and historical mountains of Reflection Riding and discover the irresistible charm of nature through his inspiring collection of poems.

Barger effectively and eloquently captures the visually breathtaking view of the Tennessee Valley and magnificently blends it with century-old tales about Native American warriors. The poem "History Embraced in Nature's Beauty," reflects Barger's lucid memories of the past and vision of the present. He writes, "Trails along the banks/ of sleepy Lookout Creek where/ ghost ofCherokees loiter/ and peer from thick bamboo./ The cries of an abused race/ whispers sadness in the stillness/ of the summer breeze along/' The Trail of Tears."

Dark Sails in the Twilight also includes the melancholic poem "Bouquet of Her Smile," an intense verse about the untimely death of true love. He writes, " What a hole she/ left in my breathing.'/ Life slowly, almost/ gasping for air/ searching for the aroma/ of her hair, bending/ ear for footsteps/ moving through mist/ of moors, her silhouette/ here, her shadow there/ laying gently on memories/ of only hours ago."

Barger's profound verses are a rousing tribute to the rich and colorful biography of Tennessee and an extraordinary addition to the contemporary American literature. He writes with acuity and sensitivity that mirrors the literary works of acclaimed poet Randall Jarrell.

From the Author:

My one desire for those who read my poems: do not judge them for grammatical and literary perfection, but rather judge them for the emotional sincerity with which they were written and join me in the emotions of sorrow, joy and laughter which all our lives experience.
