Remembering Tim Daynard
April 24, 2010 - Bill Ackerbauer
Continuing my National Poetry Month thread, I recently popped in on a Writers' Circle gathering at the Gloversville senior center. There I spoke with Joan Dyer, a member of the group who writes poetry and worked with the late Tim Daynard to get a collection of his work published in book form.
I asked how he found the motivation to pursue such an esoteric calling in small, blue-collar Gloversville. (For all I knew at that time, he might have been the only active poet in Fulton County; I realize now that was not likely the case.) He said "as long as there are things left to figure out and things left to say," he'd keep writing.
