Nonfiction / Poetry
Yes, these poems are by our 39th President. These poems are reflections on his life, from being raised on a farm in Plains, GA to going in stocking feet in a submarine listening to the "...wild sea sounds, the scratch of shrimp..." and the songs of whales.
His style of poetry is not what I normally read (I prefer un-rhymed narrative poems) but these present a good insight to this remarkable man. Well worth the read.
