POETRY
Return to Growing Old

Bill has been in love with poetry for decades. He can say more poems from memory than anyone you'll ever meet. Next time you see him, ask if he'll recite something for you.

On and off for years we've both written poetry, some good, some bad, and much of it lost. In our old age we've fallen back into it, often reading or reciting poems to each other. Now we've become daring enough to share, here, a few that we (and the occasional dear one) wrote - along with links to some of (mostly) Bill's favorite poems.
