I was born in the late 1940s which makes me one of the BABY-BOOMERS. But we could also have been called PEACE-BABIES, because that's why so many of our parents wanted
to start families - a horrendous war had ended in total victory and the Great Depression had been replaced by the New Prosperity. My parents, from lower middle backgrounds, benefited from this prosperity and were truly grateful to God and Country. But peace did not last. Ultimately, the war-mongers of the century can always find a reason for violence, and I include our nation, almost continually fighting a war somewhere, in this criticism. I'm not talking about valid or invalid reasons for war but rather the brutal FACT OF... more »

    That have power
    to tame wild birds
    Perhaps, my words
    are always less
    To say how wonderfully
    they touch me.

    Seeking your blessings
    Oh Poet Daniel Brick.! ! (Part-2)

    How lucky I am
    That you belong to my time!
    How lucky I am that I found your poetry!
    Poems, so beautiful and reassuring,
    Those can bring Angels closer to us,
    Spreading scent of sumac bushes
    Poetry that is like sunlight
    For the trees, far and near(Part-1)

    Sir Daniel Brick is a truly A LIVING LEGEND. His magnificent works are on par with that of Hemingway, Shakespeare and Wordsworth. I salute this great poet of our time. Far beyond compare!

    If you're new to Poemhunter and/or haven't read the poems of Daniel Brick, I encourage you to explore them. Daniel can write with the facility that comes from years of practice, with knowledge of the humanities that enriches his work, but, most of all, his writing comes from a lovely heart. He's one of the few poets I regularly visit here. -Glen Kappy

    Sir Daniel Brick is definitely a William Shakespeare reborn!

    A volume of Daniel Brick's poetry can sit on a bookshelf with its head up and spine straight among all the volumes of the best of poetry from the pens of all the best classic authors- - Dickinson, Frost, Sandburg, cummings, Tennyson, name your favorite. Daniel's pen flows with magic not just ink. His poetry has my head swirling with questions and wonders and imagery and magic and symbolism and psychology and philosophy and memories and heroism and love and joy of living. Every time I have picked up a new poem of his to read I find it Absolutely The Top-Notch Writing that all his readers have come to expect from Daniel Brick.

Best Poem of Daniel Brick

After The Poet's Death

His poems refuse
to mourn his passing, they
detach themselves from
books, magazines, wall hangings
and float freely
in the fair summer air.

Their refusal to mourn is
steadfast. 'He's just changed
his address, ' one of his
first poems says to the new
lyrics. 'He's done this before,
searching for a better place to live.'

'And we always go with him, '
pipes a small poem, barely
audible, maybe not
completed, hardly a poem
at all. 'We are all of us
pieces of his soul, ' booms

the lordly Epic Poem
of 24 cantos. 'We must
