Long-time Superior resident Bud Brand has been notified that his poem "Shadows" will appear in print in a 2018 work to be entitled "Awesome Poems of the Western World." With this publication Brand will have had his work published in 31 books of poetry and in four midwestern newspapers.


Shadows are

A fright'ning sight -

A stepchild of

The eerie night -

And while the darkness

Plies its trade

The shadows act

Out their charade.

Brand, who started writing poems in the eighth grade, was an English minor at the University of Wisconsin-Superior.
