Jane Durham, born in 1921, started writing poems about old age in 2001, when she moved to PineCrest Retirement Community in Lufkin, Texas. In earlier careers, she was a teacher, counselor, wife and mother. She has eight children, seventeen grandchildren and seventeen great-grandchildren.

This is her second book of poetry. "The Confused Muse" (2006) was described as a mostly light-hearted look at the changes that aging brings. "Old-Age Express" (2007) continues that theme and elaborates on it with a mix of fact, fantasy, and fiction. In the "Short Takes" section are 250 reader-friendly rhymes of eight lines or less. Easy to read, they are also easy to remember.

Some will touch your heart.
Some are full of fun.
Even if you're busy,
You can read more than one.

The twenty poems in "A Little Longer" provide a sampler of a variety of subjects in styles ranging from descriptive to narrative, whimsical to humorous, and devotional to inspirational.
