Reflections In the Twilight By William A. Kofoed
eBook (ePub): $4.95
I think of myself sometimes as an emotion sculptor more than as a poet. In that I write to shape the emotions of the reader and not to fit words to rhyme and meter. I try to write poems that are not... More > depend-ent on the language I write with. These poems were all wrote in my sixty-fourth year or in what people say are my twilight years. I find this amusing since as I write this the oldest man in America is about fifty years older than me. But it makes for a nice book title.< Less

So I start on my breaks and lunches at work to take a pen and notebook and try to write something. Doing this is how this book was written. Now as before; ‘Now I do try to write "good" poetry that people will enjoy reading, but I don't try to write poems for people to read.’ I will say about my writing method that I try to write in a way that isn’t dependent on the language they are written in. So I do not use rhyme and meter which will be lost if the poems are translated in to another language.< Less

I do not know why most poets write poetry but I know why I do so. I write because a thought gets in my head and bounces around till I write it down. You could say that I don't try to ...

Most people find that they like some of my poems and hate others of them.< Less
