A collection of poems which deals with old age, with absence and with the death of beloved animals and human friends. Included in this collection are some of the author's earlier poems which have never been published, including 11 sonnets examining love and the pain of parting, death and poetry.

Industry Reviews

The title of [Sarton's] luminous new verse collection alludes to its underlying theme: old age. It's a time when she has 'more of everything to care for, to maintain.' Her powers of observation have deepened: a cat's footfall on the stairs 'speaks of an eternal Now.' In a beautifully simple language shorn of all artifice, she speaks directly and with wisdom about grief, loneliness, death, coming to terms with one's life.
