Synopsis: This is a book about a poet's life in his beloved state of Maine. A fourth book, Ken uses his natural ability to write along with an incredible eye for beauty of all kinds; a love of nature, his fellow man, family and words. In Ken's own words he describes his thougts behind his writing and this book. A TRIBUTE William Wordsworth, the great early 19th century British poet and co-founder, with Samuel Taylor Coleridge, of the Romantic Movement in British literature, has been a significant influence in my life. I first met Wordsworth when I was a senior in high school. Miss Sylvia Kurzon was our senior English teacher who required us to memorize a number of things, many of which I was too young and inexperienced then to appreciate. One of the things we had to memorize was a passage (copied below) from Wordsworth s great Ode on Intimations of Immortality. Over the years that passage stuck in my head, and as I matured into an adult and began to piece together a conception of the world and the universe and my role in it all, Wordsworth s explanation became the framework for my personal and theological philosophy. And no other poet has influenced my own poetic style more than Wordsworth who used vivid imagery from the natural world with which he demonstrated and explained his conception of how the universe worked. To his spirit I will always be grateful. Our birth is but a sleep And a forgetting. The soul that rises with us, our life star, Hath had elsewhere it s setting, And cometh from afar; Not in entire forgetfulness, And not in utter nakedness, But trailing clouds of glory Do we come from God Who is our home. William Wordsworth Ode on Intimations of Immortality

About the Author: Ken Nye began writing poetry five years ago at the age of 62. His unique writing style quickly got the attention of other poets and critics, and in those five years he has produced four published collections of poems: Searching for the Spring: Poetic Reflections of Maine From the Heart: Poetic Reflections on Growing Old in Maine A Dog Is a Gift: A Poetic Celebration of Living with a Dog Clouds of Glory: Poetic Thoughts from Maine Ken lives in Freeport, Maine, with his wife of 47 years, Ann, in an old New England cape with three fireplaces. His playmates are a ten year old yellow Lab and a three year old Golden Retriever. The Nyes were raised New Yorkers but have lived in Maine for 39 years. They have a son and a daughter (both living in Maine and close to their parents), four grandchildren and two granddogs.
