"New Paladin's Song" is the next tune in a long series sung by a lover of words. Written almost compulsively and unplanned during the course of seventy-three days of a Nebraska summer, and nearly as extensively edited in thirty more, this is the first group of his poems that the poet has decided not to destroy. They were all composed in one room in the hours away from his work.
These verses represent poetic forms both old and new. There are love songs to his muses, dedicatory pieces to his inspirations, flights of fancy and broad stroke illustrations of his beloved Nebraska. Most importantly, he feels that they may be the first 'honest' pieces that he has ever written.
The photographs are also the work of the poet and were all captured along one narrow corridor of Western Nebraska between North Platte and the Nebraska National Forest.
