The old barn was Walter’s iconic shelter and headquarters for playing hide-and-seek, or cowboys and Indians, among the neatly stacked bales of hay. When chores were done, it was “off to the barn.” The old barn was also a perfect place for solitude, as the author found no quieter place to think and write.
By using poetry as his vehicle, Walter A. Wheat prods his audience into mental remembrance with reflections that were experienced in his own life. God is referred to many times as a point of reference. As a Vietnam Veteran, Wheat is able to give an insight into the feelings and emotions of those who have experienced the realities of war. Not without a sense of humor, Wheat can also offer a suitable explanation about “how and when that big fish got away.”
The poetry that was written in Around the Barn, Poems to Think About serves as an avenue to cushion those terrible times when life doesn’t go your way. God knows that everyday is not a good day. It is Wheat’s wish that the readers of Around the Barn, Poems to Think About strive to put their guards down and look for the true meaning of forgiveness. Let’s try concentrating on the nice things in life.
