I first met Ted Kooser in Dunedin’s UBS. Well he wasn’t actually there, but I came across a copy of Delights and Shadows there. After a quick glimpse I decided I needed to own it and since then Ted has been frequently in and out of our house as I loan him to friends. I was especially delighted when Ted allowed me to feature one of his poems in our Poems in the Waiting Room cards. Have a nosey here to read what I wrote about Ted way back in March 2012
Ted Kooser served two terms as U. S. Poet Laureate and is a winner of the Pulitzer Prize in Poetry. He lives in rural Nebraska and his most recent book, for children, is HOUSE HELD UP BY TREES.
