Poetic Obituaries: [James Kavanaugh] published several novels

and 12 books of poetry, including 1971's "There Are Men Too Gentle to Live Among Wolves," which has sold over a million copies.

It was Kavanaugh's first book of poetry.

In it he wrote: "I am one of the searchers…We searchers are ambitious only for life itself, for everything it can provide…we want to love and be loved, to live in a relationship that will not prevent our search, nor lock us in prison walls."

CNN's Larry King once said that Kavanaugh was "America's best poet," and inspirational speaker and author Wayne Dyer called him "America's Poet Laureate," according to Kavanaugh's Web site, www.jkavanaugh.com.
