"PA T R I C K G U I N A N is an
unassuming poet who tries to express in a
very natural tone and style what he has seen
and dreamed or what life as shown him.
Speaking of his poetry, Guinan has said. “I
have tried to say a few things about love and
life and our memories of things that make us
happy or sad and I have always tried to
express these thoughts as simply and
honestly as I know how.”
In the tradition of William Carlos
William, his poems are like little snapshots of
the past, images or scenes that jar the memory and bring back times and thoughts
that we all can share. His favorite poets are Frost and E. A. Robinson, Edgar Lee
Masters, and Sandburg and their spirits are never far from his thoughts.
In his mid sixties, Patrick Guinan, is still a young poet who has found his
voice and uses it to tell of his favorite memories and life’s best learned lessons.
Growing up in small towns in Michigan and Illinois, the father of two
grown children, he spent forty years teaching in Florida with brief stints as a
politician and sports broadcaster. He now spends his time between his winter
home in Bradenton, Florida, and his summer cottage by Northport Bay in the
lovely woods of Northern Michigan where he lived his young dreams."
