9780978970536: From the Heart: Poetic Reflections on Growing Old in Maine

Ken Nye has not been a poet all of his life. As a matter of fact, he discovered poetry only four years ago at the age of 61. Consequently, his poems carry the perspective of a person who can now reflect back on where he's been and how he got there, a person who is a bit more sensitive to what is important in life and what isn't.

In an easy, laid back narrative writing style laced at times with a touch of a smile, Nye tells the stories and highlights of his life as a father and husband, grandfather, lover of dogs and lover of the woods. Although Nye's poems are personal, almost all of them dealing with events and people in his life in Maine, they are also universal, prompting readers to nod their heads and say to themselves,, "I know exactly what he's talking about."

Review:

Ken Nye This collection is Everyman, speaking for all. Time and again, as I read, my mind would recognize and mutter, "I have been in a similar place,""I know that feeling, that delight," "I do the very same thing."Most importantly, "I FEEL the same way." Poems From the Heart is a collection to linger with, a companionship with Nature and with the nature in each of us. In all of its melodies, it a song of wonder for us all. -- Burt deFrees Author of The Big Brass Bed and Gift of the Animals Burt deFrees Author of The Big Brass Bed and Gift of the Animals Burt deFrees Author of The Big Brass Bed and Gift of the Animals

When (Ken Nye) wrote of Monhegan Island and his farm in rural Maine, I saw Oklahoma's rolling hills and valleys and my own parents' little place above the Red.When he wrote about the people and the natural world surrounding him, it felt like home to me. That's a rare talent in a writer and the mark of a great one. When a poet can do what Ken does with his words, put the reader right there beside him, he can transform the reader, move him, make him a part of the work. -- Ron Wallace Author of Native Son: American Poems from the Heart of Oklahoma
