Overview

The People’s Poet offers variations of what is sometimes right in front of our eyes. The author’s lasting impressions eventually crystallized into poetry that is both emotional and gripping. We may see crime and street violence, or soothing scenes such as nature and the environment.

Walter James wrote his earlier poetry about the dramatic and the frightening, but his more recent poems reflect on more serene surroundings and on thoughtful contemplations including the future of mankind.

His lasting impressions eventually crystallized into poetry that is both emotional and gripping.

Some poems were completed after years passed, including “In Spanish Harlem,” which was written “when I felt secure enough to look back in time during that period in 1980. The original poetry writing came as I was studying alone for my national license as a respiratory therapist and working full-time nights at Children’s Hospital in Los Angeles.
