A Blanket of Raven Feathers
By

Rating
Larry Schug's poetry is conversational. He likes the reader to picture themselves sitting across the kitchen table, talking over a cup of tea or coffee. Poetry is an art form, like all others, which is essentially communication between one human being and another. Larry's poetry is an art, which he hopes inspires or causes readers to perhaps think in new ways or feel some sort of emotion.

Reviews

-In the fine tradition of writers Sigurd Olson and Henry David Thoreau, Larry Schug's poetry captures a heartfelt love of nature and animals, big and small, insects to plated armadillos, using poetic language ('cacophonous congress of crows') to proclaim his love of the natural world. His wry humor will make you chuckle, while infused throughout are crisp, telling details that make you see what he sees, and believe that you are there with him ('. . . three sandhill cranes, silhouetted black on gray against the bulging water skins of rain clouds yet to burst'), and feel what he feels. -But he takes on humanity, too, from himself ('I am a young man disguised as an old man, disguised as my father, my grandfather'), the misery of a cold shared with a spouse, or sibling differences. -He takes on social justice, sending 'poems of truth (I say), to the FBI, CIA, BIA, KGB, Homeland Security, scream[ing] free verse at the Pentagon.' -Larry's poetic world is far and wide-seeing and universal and thoughtful. He sees poetry anywhere and everywhere--in his brother's restoration of their father's old barber chair, in a cat peering out a window, even through the eyes of a milkweed plant, or a tree, and one of his greatest gifts as a writer is how accessible his verse is as he moves us to view what is loved and lost and hidden and yearned for in our souls.- - Bill Vossler Life columnist for the St. Cloud Times, author of more than 3,300 articles and sixteen books, including Burma-Shave and The Art & Craft of Rewriting --Bill Vossler -Review - "In the fine tradition of writers Sigurd Olson and Henry David Thoreau, Larry Schug's poetry captures a heartfelt love of nature and animals, big and small, insects to plated armadillos, using poetic language ('cacophonous congress of crows') to proclaim his love of the natural world.
