About the Book

Gems of Yesterday: The poetry and Philosophy of Bee Lewis has been a labor of love for editor and long-time friend, Erwin A. Thompson. Each of the 274 poems in this book was carefully selected and typed by Mr. Thompson as a tribute to a man he thought of as a kindred spirit and mentor. The poems span a period of close to four decades and cover a rare glimpse of a bygone era. The subject matter ranges from the personal to the philosophical, from dialect to description.

About the Author

Bee Lewis was an observer of life, a lover of people and nature in Southwestern Illinois, and a student of language. He was also a musician, and his poetry was as much a part of evenings he spent with family and friends as were the instruments he played.
