An aging poet shares her “mixed experiences” with love – young love, disappointed love, other loves, short and sharp conclusions about love, and over-the-hill love. Humor and hard-won wisdom lie in these verses. Her subjects are things and events anyone can relate to from his or her own personal history.
Although penned by a former college professor, these poems in a variety of forms – rhymed and unrhymed- are not academic in tone. No, this volume is blood and bone reality in accessible and memorable lines.
There’s an occasional tang of bitterness and a bit of regret, but most of these poems celebrate the joyful interest which love lends to our otherwise pedestrian lives.
