Thomas P. Lynch
Director of the funeral home Lynch & Sons in Milford, Michigan, Thomas Lynch’s career has given him a unique perspective on human life cycles. His poetry provides glimpses into both his work preparing the dead and the rhythms and dramas of everyday small town life. Lynch’s Irish Catholic upbringing also influenced his poems, which sometimes include references to Irish myths. He divides his time between Michigan and Ireland.


What People are Saying

"Sure, I'd had to recite Paul Revere's Ride, or what have you, but I didn't know how expansive and powerful poetry actually was. I am a better thinker, a better listener, a better performer, a better entertainer, a better and wiser and more helpful human being because of POL."
