Much Needed Poems by William Baldwin

CHARLESTON, SC — On June 15, 2022 Evening Post Books will release Much Needed Poems by William Baldwin. Much Needed Poems are exactly what they claim to be. Poems much needed. Though there’s plenty here for the young to enjoy—a lesson in happiness for all—poet William Baldwin is now well into retirement and up against the illnesses and losses that come with advanced age. While dodging the perils of Covid and the antics of unhelpful politicians, he faces a mysterious, serious stomach ailment, the deaths of loved ones—and the gradual dimming of sight. For the last 12 years, he has been at least trying to write at least one poem each morning. Now he suddenly begins to write two and three a day—days usually starting around 3 a.m. The settings of the poems? The Southern village around him, and the natural wilderness just beyond. For companions, his wife, his dog, his kayaking and hiking buddies—and birds, fish, alligators. The first line in the collection is: “In Heaven will I be allowed to bog through the salt marsh again?”
