Whinny. Poems about Nature, Human and Otherwise HTML version

Copyright 2008
This book is dedicated to Garrison Keillor, who doesn’t know about it or know me and
who bears no responsibility for any poem here. I dedicate it to him because I appreciate
the daily inspiration of his website, The Writer’s Almanac and also the weekly
entertainment of his radio program The Prairie Home Companion. Although I have an
M.A. in creative writing, once I left the University environment I suffered the fate of
many an English major and have been isolated from those who enjoy poetry. So Garrison
Keillor, a complete stranger, has been my connection to that world where people love
literature even though it’s an impractical field of study.
