9781877727658: Treehouse: New and Selected Poems

Kloefkorn has been called the Garrison Keillor of poetry. His highly-accessible work combines the rhythms of the poet with the spellbinding lyricism of the storyteller. Although he writes from and about the mid-western United States, these are poems that touch on universal issues of time and place, of growing up and growing older. This book contains work from eleven books, most of which are now out of print, and a large selection from new work reflecting the current state of affairs in his, and our, world.
