"Roy K. Piper has been documenting his piece of America for decades writing lines like these: 'Next, the blast from the Amtrak makes my van sway and shake; As a skiff rocks at the dockside from a powerboat's wake.' Enjoy." - Norman Klein, a founding editor of Ploughshares

"For one man's history of our times, love of words, and tricks of rhymes, I highly recommend Eternity Lost and Other Poems by Roy K. Piper." - Ernest Hebert, Author, the Darby Chronicles

"Roy K. Piper is a fearless poet. Unafraid to use traditional rhyme and meter in this modern era, ETERNITY LOST and Other Poems gives us thoughtful stories and meditations of whales and squirrels, Shakespeare and Frost, and even Jessica Fletcher of Murder, She Wrote. Even Godzilla! In the title poem, he challenges us to confront "the terrible toll" of environment. Read the man's work, and you will appreciate the ordinary and the extraordinary aspects of your life."

-John T. Hitchner, author of the collections Seasons and Shadows, Pieces of Life Between, and the novel The Acolyte.

About the Author

Roy Kingsbury Piper was born in Keene, New Hampshire in 1928 on a record-setting windy day. In 1950, he graduated from Brown University, then spent nearly two years in the Philippines with the Army Corp of Engineers during the Korean War. He met his future bride, Anne, in New Jersey, they married in 1956, and then had four children after returning to his home town. Roy worked as a Land Surveyor until he retired in the 1990s, then he and Anne traveled the eastern United States showcasing fine antiques. This is when he honed his skills in verse. Roy is a member of the Poetry Society of New Hampshire, and has been writing poems for his friends, family, and seven grandchildren for as long as anyone can remember.
