About this title

Synopsis:

Through various points of view, Davis takes us back to a simpler time when “men wore suits and ties.” Her poems are observations of people she has known: neighbors, relatives and friends, of poignant memories resurfacing after a “long and peaceful nap.” We come to know a woman joyful in nature and among loved ones who’s still “struggling to maintain balance” in this ever-changing world. ~ Norma Ketzis Bernstock, Don’t Write a Poem About Me After I’m Dead *** Lorraine Davis is a quiet poet. Her poems are often soothing, sometimes painful but always thought-provoking. From “The Blue Serge Sears and Roebuck Man” to “Our Daughter’s Hair,” each has its own message for us, its own life lesson. Some make us smile, some provoke a tear. All are entertaining for they all represent life.
