“It begins with a feeling, usually some deep emotion that encompasses your entire being, profound sadness, euphoric bliss or just sincere admiration for something or someone.” This is exactly how author Donald Bastedenbeck writes poetry or songs. He shares to readers Sitting On A Narrow Tree Limb, a collection of his masterpieces that will be featured at the New England Library Association Book Exhibit in Burlington, Vt. on Oct. 2-4, 2011.
“Poetry is pure emotion; it grabs you and takes you on a journey,” Bastedenbeck writes. Writing all his life, poems and songs seem to seep from his pores. Even before he learned guitar, he was fascinated with rhymes and word images. “You write with a fury often not knowing what you are expressing until it’s done. Sometimes you feel mentally and physically drained after a simple ten minute labor,” he adds.
With themes mixed up for variety, Sitting On A Narrow Tree Limb contains many of the author’s emotional jaunts that have become important pieces of his life. Written more than forty years ago, some poems are filled with ideals and desires, others are an attempt at expressing profound love and joy he has enjoyed by being apart of certain peoples lives.

About the Author
Don Bastedenbeck is a songwriter and a poet. He began as a young teenager when he took up the guitar, an act the changed and helped shape his life. Today, nearly a half century later, he still returns to his roots for introspection and meditative purposes. His emotional journey is here, laid out for all to see, the good times and the bad, the joyful and the somber. These poems are not to evoke sympathy nor are they meant as an apology. They are written in hope to connect with others on a spiritual level, to be relatable. To him few things are more relevant.
