Biography of Robert J Meyer

Robert J Meyer poet

An English teacher in an alternative high school for former dropouts in inner-city Chicago for the last decade, he has worked in newspapers for several years prior to his current vocation. Meyer writes in both formal and informal verse on a variety of topics. He is a happy Chicagoan now. Updates


The memory of wet shoes and grimy windshields and grey days
Melts as the first fecund aromas permeate the air,
And I sit dumbstruck by the sudden dissolve of the winter haze
And the first buds and birds that take the dare
And join in this exuberance of newness
Made concrete by the coming of the light,
And I know this is the year’s sudden redress
Of the angst and ennui that December, January and February bring to the fight.
