These poems were gathered from more than one hundred others I have saved over the years and those which I wished people to read. I stopped writing poetry in my fifties (with an occasional lapse) and these verses span approximately the time from when I entered college until I became a grandfather. I am proud of one or two, but less enthused by others. I never thought of myself as a poet--indeed, I am not sure what a poet is--but if it means wringing from personal experience some words that seem to belong together, then I think these pages fulfill that definition. Many poems are concerned with war and death. I would like to think they also reflect a time when war and death or the cold war and death were important themes in history. They certainly reflect how I felt about both at the time. I do not know why I stopped writing poetry, but clearly it was in part because I no longer needed it as a means of expression. Nevertheless, I think it worth saving these poems, if only because they are a record of the past. --CFH About the author: Carl F.
