A parent watches their child fishing and reflects on how he’s grown up. “I remember how it felt / to cradle your baby skull.” Beautifully done.
“Get out the ink and weep!” Two enjoyable poems about inspiration which affectionately poke fun at poets.
Simply a poem about two trees that have come to lean on each other.
Two incredibly sad poems about the aftermath of a stillbirth. “Someday, within these walls, / I will hear my baby cry.”
A great poem from an old master. “Words are for those with promises to keep.”
About a conductor of an orchestra who suffers from Parkinson’s. Moving.
