A legacy of shadows : selected poems by David Lee( Book )

6 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 272 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Over the past two decades David Lee has written poems populated with some of the most vividly drawn characters since those of Mark Twain. Like Twain, he has taken great care to elucidate the ordinary lives of rural Americans, painstakingly capturing the sound and rhythm of their voices as they work and reminisce, as they bury their dead and trade their gossip."--Jacket
So quietly the earth by David Lee( Book )

3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 263 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Last call : new poems by David Lee( )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 256 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Few poets of Western America fill the "organic intellectual" role better than David Lee. His poetry is the real deal when it comes to recording hilariously insightful--and linguistically accurate--observations of rural culture and America at large while using a host of astute literary allusions and techniques. Imagine Robert Frost simultaneously channelling Will Rogers and Ezra Pound. Imagine Chaucer with a twang. Last Call is bloody brilliant and wickedly witty." --Publisher's description

The poetry of rural Utah. In Prelude, he writes: "I go home every day / don't matter where I am / I'm the prodigal son coming back / I don't even need a Greyhound bus / I can go to my town right now / right here talking to you / because this / is everywhere / I've ever been."

These poems are rooted in stories overheard at the Wayburne Pig Cafe. They capture a rural community's true voice, peppered with gossip & arguments right off Main Street. Moving away from the "pig poems" which have delighted so many readers, News finds Lee more lyrical, gentle, & reflective than in previous works, yet once again his characters are heartbreaking, hilarious, & unfailingly entertaining.

Bluebonnets, firewheels, and brown-eyed Susans : or poems new and used from the Bandera rag and bone shop by David Lee( )

3 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 98 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Few poets of Western America fill the "organic intellectual" role better than David Lee. His poetry is the real deal when it comes to recording hilariously insightful (and linguistically accurate) observations of rural culture--and America at large--while using a host of astute literary allusions and techniques. Imagine Robert Frost simultaneously channeling Will Rogers and Ezra Pound. Imagine Chaucer with a twang. Bluebonnets, Firewheels, and Brown-Eyed Susans is focused on the women of mid-20th century rural Texas: frontier survivors and the daughters of frontier survivors, indomitable women with tastes that run from Baptist preaching to bourbon-and-branchwater. No element of hypocrisy escapes the poet's lethal attention. This is an authentic book of the mid 20th century based on actual characters, a paen to women who shaped and molded the poet's life. It is in many ways a folkloric study of women in hard times: characters, survivors, intellects, harbingers, anonymous influencers. Utah's first and longest serving Poet Laureate, Lee has received both the Mountains & Plains Booksellers Award in Poetry and the Western States Book Award in Poetry"--
