John Lehman, aka The Village Poet, has a new chapbook showing up around the Cambridge-Rockdale community. Free copies can be found just about everywhere, from the library to the state bank to the Piggly Wiggly. John says he’ll send out free copies to anyone interested, far and wide. Email name and address to John@VillagePoet.com.
Local residents abound throughout John’s work. I myself was honored to discover on returning home last year from a family vacation at sea that a commemorative poem had been issued. Reprinted below exactly as it appears in the Village Poet chapbook:
