Mr. Reinhart’s Book of Poems

Mr. Reinhart Authors ‘Missals From Space’

coverMr. John Reinhart, Denver Waldorf High School Language Arts Teacher, has published a book of poetry.

“I remember once informing my parents that I wanted to be an astronaut,” writes Mr. Reinhart, “NASA is unlikely to ever clear me for space flight, but these poems are my exploration of space, inner and outer.”

The first printing is limited to 100 copies, handbound with handprinted covers.


Dawning light of grace
speaking in the stillness
forgotten between bursts
of neon and promise,
grant me strength of patience
for my work yet undone.

Mr. Reinhart is a graduate of The Denver Waldorf High School. He earned a BA in political science from Hampshire College, specializing in social and political movements. He completed his Waldorf teacher training at Antioch University in New England, and received his Master’s in Education in December 2007.

Three years ago, Mr. Reinhart finished assembling and editing a cookbook of his grandmother Natalie Reinhart’s recipes. Almost two years ago, Mr. Reinhart and his brother, Patrick, sat down to record a second album of traditional fiddle tunes. Now comes “Missals From Space.”
