“Tom Harrington’s poetry may touch upon the challenges of life on the family farm and his years beyond, but his words remind us, whatever the disappointment, love is more important.”
— Pamela Danforth Yaco

“Harrington’s words, as sensual and delicious as a summer peach, made me laugh, nod in recognition, and sigh in the wake of loss and sorrow. His carefully stirred wisdom, humor, and soul-comforting glimpses of love, humanity, and nature, touched my soul. His voice is a jar full of fireflies lighting the way.”
— Sharon Lovejoy, author of Running Out of Night

“Tom’s poems are like stones that boys once carried in their pockets: talismanic moments of a life worn smooth with touching that he wants to put in the palms of our hands.They are a medley of rhyme, yearning, vivid metaphor and thanksgiving to his mother, father, sister Rae, partner Susan, his faithful dog, Ginger and to Buttercup, the cow he milked as a boy. His sounds lull like the tide in his Water Ways ‘flooding eelgrass meadows / and pickleweed thickets / with life.’”
— George Burns, poet, Los Angeles, CA
