About the Book

His Noble Numbers collects new poems from George Klawitter’s most recent work and a few poems written fifty years ago. The themes focus on nature, memory, and the human condition. Some of the poems are evocative of important world events, but most of the poems commemorate people and events close to the author. The forms are often tight, including several sonnets and a sestina, but meter is more often free flowing, carrying the natural rhythms of conversation. Many of the poems reflect Texas, especially the Texas Hill Country, where the author has spent the last seventeen years of his life.
