by James Tosh

Book Image Not Available
Overview
The book consists of 47 poems written by a baby boomer on various topics that are common with other baby boomers: family, friends, jobs, music, sports, community, current affairs, and the like. I think most baby boomers and their families can relate to the various topics presented.
Description
"A Baby Boomer's Book of Poems" contains 47 poems written over a period of 12 years written on various topics relative to the lives of typical baby boomers and their families: family, friends, jobs, music, sport's, community, current affairs, and the like. Various titles include: " A Walk in the Park", "Reflections", "My Boy J", "Retailing Rock n' Roll", "My Family Tree", "Revolution", "Skinny Gary", "Ah - the Cine-ma", "Diet, Diet", "My Favorite Songs",and the like. I feel my book would appeal to the average boomer but it is not, perhaps, for the "wild and crazy", though as I recall there were a few of those around at the time ! We all made the world go round.
About the author
Born: Cinco de Mayo, 1947 in Bloomington, Illinois. Illinois Wesleyan grad, 1969. I previously taught and coached at the junior high level for nine years. Since teaching school I have predominately been in the furniture business as an owner, manager, asst. manager, and sales person. I presently work at an Amish made solid hardwood furniture store. I had an autobiography published in 2006 that I plan to have republished in the months to come. As far as the poems go I started to write a few after my book was published and rather liked the process. The wording and rhyming seemed to come pretty easily so whenever a particular topic of interest would occur it seems like a poem would follow. I sincerely enjoy writing these gems ( ? ) and hope the readers do as well.
