About Robert Zimmermann

Robert has been writing poetry since the eleventh grade. His writing started as impulsive rambling, but soon became a passion. A few years later he attended SUNY Potsdam where he received a B.A. in Creative Writing.
His main focus is poetry, but at times you can find him dabbling in short fiction. Robert has also created the blog A Life Among The Pages, where he posts his writing as well as book reviews.
When he’s not reading or writing, Robert enjoys spending time with his dog, Deuc. Deuc ran out of the woods in August 2011 and they have been inseparable ever since.

Winter's Homecoming and Other Poems is a book showcasing eight works by Robert Zimmermann. The author has a great grasp of language, manipulating ordinary scenes into wondrous and poetry. The author's work is effective and adds a lot of character to scenery. For example, the titular work "Winter’s Homecoming" conveys ordinary feelings one might endure at winter. However, the author uses these occurrences to reminisce of those feelings. Overall, these works are well done. It is a short, perfect read for those looking to get a little bit of enjoyment.

Winter’s Homecoming is a short collection of poems by Robert Zimmermann to tide us over from his previous collection, From Where I Stand, while he writes more poetry. It’s a fast read, but you’ll more than likely want to reread at least one of these poems once you finish.

You can read through these poems in about ten or fifteen minutes—it’s a really short read. But what I liked best about this collection was that I wanted to go back and reread a couple of them. Namely, Cutting a New Course and The Boarder.

The theme of this collection seems to be “snippets of life.” Each poem is a snapshot of a moment in time, complete with vivid imagery or carefully chosen repetition to entice us.

Poetry fans will no doubt enjoy this collection, and I think it’s a pretty good teaser collection for those who haven’t yet read Zimmermann’s From Where I Stand. I recommend both. Enjoy.

Zimmermann is the Yoda master of poetry. After you read this short collection, be sure to pick up his From Where I Stand Collection. I collect poetry books and both of these are high on my list. I always recommend them.

I adored Robert zimmermann's From Where I Stand so I was happy to see this new short collection! Not to mention the cover is goooorgeous! This is a very short collection--I read it in minutes!--but it's perfect to share and I like to revisit some of the poems and give them more thought, which I find myself doing with this collection. Read and enjoy!

Very few poems in this chapbook, but all of them are beautiful and heartfelt. You feel connected to nature and different seasons through the poet's words. Prosaic poems with a very special musicality that makes you feel connected to them easier. Fantastic job once more.

A beautiful taste of what the author has to offer. Check out 'From Where I Stand' too.

Rob does it again. His poems get to you. Through his words different seasons come and go, and with them he makes you feel and see the seasons as we go. The winds, trees, dirt, sun. Feel all those things and more with this poetry book. Thank you for sharing you words and feelings with us.

Robert Zimmermann strikes a beautiful and emotional chord with his new collection. I have my favorites: Innocence Lost, From the Earth We..., The Last Caress of Summer, but I found something natural and profound in all of them. Winter's Homecoming welcomes in a season of cold and contemplation where I feel the author's optimism tinged with resignation. Emotions are thought provoking and complex - the hallmark of any great chapbook. Do yourself a favor and get a copy.
