American Lyricon: A Poet Sings of America is a lyrical anthology of one man's personal journey envisioned through poetry and music in five sections: In, "Under Wide, Wide Skies", there are poetic pictorials of immigrants search for the American ideal. In, "An American Lexicon", there's fanfares for the common people -- their hopes, fears, and dreams. "Karaoke Honky-Tonk", there's personal songs of heartbreak, joy, love, sadness, faith, and hope.  "Cracking on A Political Moon", you'll see poems of bitterness, redemption, struggles and turmoil as voices of war, peace and protest. In the final part, Green Slumbers, there are songs, ditties and stories of reflection, loss, and humor in a variety of poetic styles.


Open Call
Open your mind, clear your thoughts.
Open your heart's door; follow the path
Walk on crushed velvet green grass
Feel the wind beneath your feet.
Touch the world with tingling toes
As leaves crackle under your heels
Let the planet move you to evolve.
Hear nature's conversation in the trees
Listen to the sound of the whippoorwill.
She calls for you.

Poetry comes in many forms, each word stemming from the heart that moves the pen. Joel L. Young's American Lyricon is a work that truly has been drawn from the recesses of his inner being. His love, respect and understanding for America are felt with every dip of his pen and transferred onto the hearts of those who read his words.

Written from deposits that have been placed within his spirit by people, events and places he has encountered in his life, his words sting the conscience of our souls and demand our minds to remember, to cry, to laugh and to hope. He makes us see America at her best, America in her struggles, and feel the sorrows and joys of our fellow Countrymen, all bringing to fruition what America was yesterday, what America is today, and what America will be tomorrow. American Lyricon speaks forth the heart of America.

Whispers of the past, thoughts for the present and prayers for the future are the feelings etched in my heart after reading this work.

One phrase from Canadian Skyline will remain with me forever: "Whose mist is the breath of God!" Outstanding!

American Lyricon by Joel L. Young ISBN #1931540683

"American Lyricon has something for everyone and touches on a wide variety of topics and feelings. It will draw out an appreciation for poetry in even the most unpoetic reader. At times romantic, historical, and patriotic - other times playful, folksy and whimsical; Joel Young's writings are thought-provoking, soul-searchiing, and entertaining.

American Lyricon is a wonderful book for every household, on every coffee table for all to enjoy."

Phyllis M. Payne
