A BIT OF POETRY
21 June 2019
On today, which would have been my sister's 72nd birthday, I thought I would reprint some of her poems. We found a collection of them after her death and I retyped them and had them bound in a book to give to my parents. She had a lot of emotional pain and disappointment in her life and most of them reflect that, such as
Ridding oneself of loneliness
Occasionally a warm puppy
But in time he too leaves
She also loved the sea the way I do and had a lot of sea-related poems.
The surf pounds and pounds against
This is one she wrote after visiting our grandfather, who died in a rest home.
You lie, old man
And I wonder
What do you think about
A strange existence!
How precious your life must be
She had a lot of relationship problems, which are either addressed of hinted at in most of her poems, like this one
To see a face
or this one...
Ashes--Remnants of what at one time was
Happy birthday, Karen ... wherever you are. I hope you
are finally happy.
