This book is a concentrated life story in the way 'There Was a
Child Went Forth' was young Walt Whitman's life story.
Charlie has gone forth and looked upon diamonds shining in a
telescope, an old cherry tree reaching out to a clothesline, a
green worm hanging angelically in Spring, the apocalyptic
Virgin footloose in Santa Fe, a fisher in the possibility of
extraterrestrial gardeners, fun and kicks with GI Joe in urban
America, death at sea, dandelions. – From the Foreward by Larry Calloway

An absolute gem! Charlie Langdon has given us a taste of what poetry should be - a kind of magic done with works that touch the heart of all of us.
