The Song of River Grass: A Video Poem

This is one of my original poems set to music with personal photos and edited by Ken Gierke, who added music and magical touch ups. Creating video poetry may get addicting! Photos inspire me.

Thank you for viewing and liking this video on YouTube. My channel is Barbara Leonhard. Not too fancy! Please subscribe and hit the bell for notifications of new uploads!

Look for this poem and video at MasticadoresUSA in the near future! Thank you, Gabriela Marie Milton, for accepting my video and verse!

Note: This poem, The Song of River Grass, is NOT among those in my debut poetry book, Three-Penny Memories: A Poetic Memoir. I will post my 4th reading from my book, which premieres on Amazon on October 15 in both Kindle and print format.

I’ll post my 4th and last poetry reading from Three-Penny Memories this week on Friday morning. I hope you like the poem and my stories behind it.

To mark the launch of the book, my publisher and I will be holding a Zoom Launch Event on 15 October at 17:00 BST (12:00 EDT, 11:00 CDT) in which I will read some poems, and we will talk about the creation of the book. We hope you can join us! Here are the Zoom details:

Thank you all for your encouragement and support along the way to the publication of my poetry book! The topic of my book makes me feel vulnerable, but I’ve felt so much love from all of you!
