While history recounts what happened, literature relates how we feel about what happened. Poetry is a story, a song, a prayer; it is about the human experience--sometimes about an individual and other times a collective body of people--a nation. It is both fact and feeling. The poems in Johnson's Wings of Fire are powerful, critical, and sensitive. Insightful and haunting.From the Author:
I never knew I was going to become a poet. It began at Mary Allen Junior College in Crockett, Texas (a presbyterian school now closed). An English instructor also a writer was the first to recognize my writing potential. I wrote a poem about the raindrops that were coming down the window pane. When I gave it to my instructor, she read it and was pleased. That made me happy. It was my beginning with writing poetry.
