New and Selected Poems

By Steven Fromholz
Edited by Billy Bob Hill

The songs and poems of 2007 Texas Poet Laureate Steven Fromholz tell of a life that began with “bikes and trikes and kites and trees” and has progressed through fatherhood and many days and nights spent on the road. He is a poet as well worth reading as he is a singer worth hearing.

Fromholz’s poetry and lyrics evoke the western landscape, capture memories of the past and plans for the future, and plumb the depths and heights of feeling engendered by life as a touring musician. Despite a stroke, which felled him for a time, Fromholz still acts a whitewater guide on the Rio Grande, still performs, and still writes the poems that caused the State Legislature to name him Poet Laureate of Texas for 2007.

Steven Fromholz is best known for his Texas Trilogy, one of the great classics in Texas music. He has appeared in half a dozen movies and has published A Texas Trilogy, 2007 Esteban Press.
