Low Sweet Notes
|Author: ||Williams, Robert Carl|
Many of these poems in mood and content are inspired buy the poet’s reverence for the sea and sky and the changing seasons in the mountains of Vermont. His work draws heavily from his life’s considerable experiences, both his early years on a farm and his observations of human frailty and renewal.
About the poet: Robert Carl Williams spent his formative years on a small farm in East Tennessee, at the foothills of Appalachia. He holds a BS in civil engineering from the University of Tennessee, trained as a jet fighter pilot toward the end of the Korean War, received a BA in architecture at the Harvard Graduate School of Design, and moved to Vermont in the early ‘60s. He is an avid sailor, spending six months each winter sailing westward around the world with his wife Annabelle. During the summer and fall he works in his ongoing practice of architecture as senior partner.
