"...Feelings are not linear and unique [esoteric] to me, but a mosaic, or better, a collage of sensory experiences, expressed with shapes, colors, sounds and the whole range of correlative objects that grate on the nervous system to make humankind know it is alive." This quote is taken from "A Preface by the Poet" in Indian Summer, the greatest book of poems I ever read. It is out of print. But the first half of the contents of the original edition is given in this publication, POEMS.

La Di La Dah

It is odd to contemplate that a slim book of poems might represent the end result of a genius' life effort to produce a great work of art. And that a grown man has dedicated most of his life to achieving the kind of results, Mr. Brewton achieves in these little gems of poetry. But each poem is almost a complete novel, in and of itself. Mr. Brewton laments, like any other mortal human being, the inevitable passage of time and youth, but the slender little volume of poems which he has produced is an achievement of a century, a monumental work and a work of genius. And the way he says things...is so bewitching, such as his comment at the end of his poem "Leaning Posts:" "When all we ever asked of time or place Was that it would be there When we returned."


Excerpt

We played checkers on the banisters while our sun was bright and petunias wound their way upward on a string By evening we gathered together on the doorsteps listening to ghost tales or watching how stars blinked and planets stood still At night we put our board and me away while flowers closed their blooms and with phantoms raging in our heads We shut our eyes and slept as quiet moons.
