The Would-Be Herbalist--A floating world of song and verse. Hear echoes of Louis, Ella, Billie, Chet and Nat King Cole in some of the lyrics and Hank, Lefty and George in some of the others... with cross-overs possible. Find traces of old country, new country, blues, bluegrass, jazz ballads, folk traditions and western swing with the sometimes imperfect rhymes of the oral tradition. The poetry, by and large, is the poetry of the lyric poet. The aim primarily is to delight and bring pleasure. So read these poems aloud, sing them--the words of one person to more
