Pamela Spiro Wagner's last comments on poems and poets

  • POEM: Parkinson's Disease by Galway Kinnell (12/2/2014 8:42:00 AM)

    I found this a lovely commentary on mortality and filial devotion as presumably the husband/narrator watches his wife tend her father in the last stages of Parkinson's disease. With a nod to Roethke's well-known poem (at the end) , the simple, tender language creates a quiet but not sappy portrait of a once robust even hard man who might be at the mercy of his daughter were she another sort, but her portrayal shows us that she is not...He may have been hard at one point, but she is all love and acceptance...which is why he is lucky at this stage in life for it to be a small dislocation
    for him to pass from this paradise into the next.

    Hi yaya, i wonder if in that year that is now over how it went... Did you get to write and let yourself keep your work? I hope so. Remember that all writing counts as practice, so even when you cannot sit down to write a poem you are still working when you take care in writing emails or notes to anyone at any time. I would love to hear from you, see what youve been up to, writing-wise, if you cared to show me. Feel free to contact me, you know how! My best. Pam
