 About the Book 

No Daffodils, No Clouds, like Tom Lyfords earlier poetry books, is a compendium of baby boomer Americana. The table of contents listing, with everything from Brat Packs and Idiots Guide to Wormholes to A Terrible Thing to Waste and PoemMoreNo Daffodils, No Clouds, like Tom Lyfords earlier poetry books, is a compendium of baby boomer Americana. The table of contents listing, with everything from Brat Packs and Idiots Guide to Wormholes to A Terrible Thing to Waste and Poem Nazis, reads like the big board of Alex Trebecks Jeopardy categories. Allow Tom Lyford to personally introduce you to his unwitting mentors Janis Joplin, Bob Dylan, Tom Waits, Leonard Cohen, Stephen King, J. D. Salinger, and Ray Bradbury. Accept the tokens he offers for passage back through the Twilight Zone turnstile to relive those sights and sounds and smells of your 50s and 60s drive-in movie theater and roller skating pavilion. Contemplate his long view as to where weve been, and where were headed. But youll discover no wandering lonely as a cloud or host of daffodils here. Why? Because legions of Wordsworth wannabes have been doing that since 1802. What you will find, however, is a lot of humor and heart. Youll find accessible poems that you can understand. And youll even find creative illustrations...
