9781418409753: The Older I Get. . .: Light Verse from a Senior Perspective

It has been written that "Don Weill speaks for his generation," the senior generation, that is. His medium is light verse and his subjects range from the joys of grandparenthood to the aches and pains of the aging athlete; from retirement to second chances: from the recollection of old romances to the setting of new goals, even as we age. Quite extraordinary is the number of readers of Don Weill verse who recognize themselves when reading his poetry for the first time. There is no question but that these verses strike a common chord. Men and women both will relate to such brilliantly-conceived poems as "Doctor, No Surprises, Please," "Moodswing," "Where Are the Toys of Yesteryear?" and "Watching the Sun." From the poignancy of "Maybe," and "Grandpa Wasn't Born This Way" to the gentle good humor of "Shhh..." and "Full Circle," this delightful book is guaranteed to touch readers of. all ages - those who are already seniors and those who aspire to reach that exalted status. "The Older I Get..." deserves a place on every bookshelf. It is the kind of book guaranteed to be read not only once, but many times over.
