WOW! Strong stuff, need to come back and reread. Yet again.Thanks so much, Blue Rose! :-DHaving a husband die is a pretty traumatic thing and takes a really long time to recover from and rediscover yourself.Did you ever read The Year of Pleasures? It's a little unrealistic, I think, but a good read anyway.
Thanks for the encouragement, Mary! No I haven't. Who's it by?
Again a very strong poem with a strong rhythm and a tight rhyme scheme that never feels forced or unnatural. There is an almost sardonic undertone to this poem, perhaps because of the alliterative b's in "Baby's black and blue". It really sets the pace while unsettling the reader. The relentless rhyme scheme then effectively drives this home. I could go on. This is such a good poem. Love it.
Wow! Thanks Ario! This is such a wonderful compliment, especially since it comes from such a talented poet.
