McKuen is one of my favorite poets and songwriters. Long before he disclosed he was molested, I just knew it as I read his writings and poems.
"We had joy;
we had fun;
we had seasons in the sun..."
My son was only three and loved this line from our favorite song. We sang lots in the car.
Before I knew Mckuen had a cat named Sloopy, I had black cat named Sloopy.
Did Mckuen's songs move you? Did you buy his poetry Listen to the Warm?
