Lost & Found

David Lanier

The eighteen poems in this collection recall a boy’s childhood and coming-of-age in a small town in the rural Southeast of the 1960s. Much of the physical evidence of the world in which the boy lived has disappeared over the intervening years as a result of the death of parents and friends as well as profound changes in the natural and social environment of the region. These poems attempt not only to revisit what has been “lost,” but to “find” anew the emotional meaning and significance of the people, objects and things of nature that populated the world being remembered.

“The seemingly simple and direct diction of these exquisitely crafted poems belies the wisdom, insight, and epiphanies looming beneath their crystalline surfaces.”—Larry D. Thomas, Final Judge

DAVID LANIER, who currently resides in Santa Fe, New Mexico, lived for  many years in Washington, D.C., where he was on the faculty of the Georgetown University School of Medicine. His poems have appeared in Poetry, Poet Lore, Southern Poetry Review, Marlboro Review, Louisville Review, and several other small magazines.
