Leawood Poet Publishes First Book

Leawood poet Arlin Buyert recently published his first book of poems entitled, Where Shadows Take Their Places. The book is receiving excellent reviews from nationally known poets and educators.

Former U.S. Poet Laureate Ted Kooser wrote “Your book is elegiac and touching–I hope it finds many readers over the years.”

Poet and educator Jim Moore wrote “Arlin Buyert’s voice in these wonderful poems is a complex mix of sorrow and joy. There is such a sense of loss here, but also of love. These are poems that mark, mourn and celebrate the passages in life that all of us must encounter. They are a pleasure to read, pause, then read again.”

The book is available at AbeBooks.com, Amazon.com and in most local bookstores.
