    One thought on “Elegy for Trains”

    1. I liked this collection of poems. Myers is an English professor at my alma mater. He began teaching the year after I graduated, but I did get to listen to one of his lectures when he came and interviewed.Of the 80 poems here, I found 8 that I found to be especially powerful:AncestorsThings My Grandmother SaidPoets With Happy ChildhoodsThe Ghost in the PhotographMid-Winter: Clarksville, ArkansasThe Writing ProcessNoodlingBlessingMyers' favorite images include trains, moons, rivers, and the sky.

    2. This is great poetry. Benjamin Myers writes with the heart and soul of a poet. If I had to lose the Oklahoma Book Award, this book at least made me feel like I was in the company of greatness. There are so many good pieces here, I'd hate to pick a favorite, but "Ancestors" and the title piece are pretty damned awesome.
