Dancing Alone: Selected Poems
William Hawkins

Bill Hawkins was a mentor to Bruce Cockburn during Bruce's early days in the Ottawa music scene. In April, 2005, Bill released a book of poetry called Dancing Alone: Selected Poems.

“When I started writing songs, it was to put music to Bill Hawkins’ lyrics.... I quickly fell under the spell of this charismatic man who became a kind of mentor.... Everyone should read these poems.”—Bruce Cockburn, from the Preface
