Tony Jolley's last comments on poems and poets

  • POEM: ! ! Aging With Grace? by Alison Cassidy (2/18/2010 6:42:00 AM)

    Hi Ali, evocative, as always. Provocative too, for me with the title, given that courtesy of a pretty awful divorce some five or more years ago I am now, I am 'Aging without Grace' - the Grace in question being my daughter.... poignant. That personal connection apart, your observations are always pinpoint-sharp. What a continuum you paint between the two ladies... and what does propel one to the one extreme rather than the other? Maybe fighting, king Canute-like, the tide of age is one of the poles perhaps the other is a measure of acceptance that the tide will come in whether we like it or not. Between the two, I guess, we are all just dancing on the beach as long as we can..... As ever, you set me off thinking and for me that is always the sign of good writing. Regards from a 10 minute break between teaching classes! Tony

    A Dark moment indeed, Kev. Lots to ponder upon our respective parapets.......maybe a good case for me not bothering with the life assurance: no-one there to collect! Tony

    Can but agree with Fay, Kevin.... this chimes everyone's bell, I strongly suspect - it must do or we wouldn't be human.... Tony
