    Robert Howard's work is an inspiration. His series involving Thomas Jefferson and the 'Lewis and Clark expedition' will fascinate not only those who have aquired extensive knowledge in American history, but also to those who have not yet been quite so engaged, enchanting the reader to their own path of discovery. Robert has created a series of poetic knowledge that I hope will make its way into every history text book.

    Robert Charles Howard is an erudite poet, whose musical and intellectual sensibilities continue to astound. With humor, wit and wisdom he guides the poetic community by example. His only lack seems to be cynicism, but others may supply that.

    It is evident when you read Robert’s pieces that he as had a rich background in
    music. Presenting his motifs in a narrative orchestration – as if he’s configured
    them into scenes and acts, he tells you stories. Enjoy.

Best Poem of Robert Charles Howard

Leaves Of Gold

The artist leaned in slowly
to his daughter’s sculpted visage,
placed a slender leaf of gold
across her ceramic brow
and gently pressed it with his brush.

But for all his art and craft he knew
no gilder’s foil was half so dear
as the child with half-closed eyes –
with mother’s tender brush
caressing strands of finest gold -
singing her to sleep.

December, 2008

Read the full of Leaves Of Gold


Robin hums as she tends her garden
while birds perch all around
waiting for rustling seeds
to fill the slender columns.
Humming birds hover near
to sip sweet nectar mixed for them alone.

On concert nights her voice takes flight.
and fills the hall with her radiant soul.
