Richard Lehnert

Richard Lehnert continues to be surprised by how much time is required to write something good. He lives with his wife and occasionally finishes a poem in Ashland, Oregon.

— From April 2014

At Last

It is not true that every son / and father come to this / the rough bass of your voice / singing the endless tune

April 2014

The Only Empty Place

Arriving late to a party / I had almost not been asked to / and being no longer young / almost had not joined / seated by hosts I barely knew
