About this title
Cows in the Fog and Other Poems and Stories paints pictures of pastoral life, weaving in poignant feelings with rural honesty. Celebrate the beauty of mountain brooks, trees, and birds. Enjoy heartfelt memories of people who have touched the poet’s life. Some of S.T. Haggerty’s poems are modern in style, and viewpoints are reflected through commentary on nature, reminiscent of Robert Frost. In these 45 poems, the poet philosophizes in his own distinct voice with feeling, inspiration, and humor. He allows readers to bond and feel present with him, using eloquent speech, clever metaphors, and vivid imagery. He also offers a country memoir, witty quotes, and a comical short story. In this collection, Haggerty touches on a remarkable variety of themes. Each piece flows smoothly as he recalls childhood memories on a dairy farm, ponders the gift of friendship, and contemplates truth in his personal experience. The natural world, its conflict as well as beauty, helps to shape his thoughts.About the Author:
