Rod McKuen RIP
« on: January 30, 2015, 01:36:02 PM »
I remember when somebody turned me on to the poetry of Rod McKuen. Would have been maybe '72. The critics said he wasn't much of a poet, but he sold millions and millions of albums of his poems and songs. He even won an Oscar, I believe.

Here's a whimsical anti-war song from the Vietnam days.

I liked some of his poems, like this one.

What makes the desert beautiful is that somewhere it hides a well.
