A New Voice in Poetry... at 107!
Poems from the Pond features the words and wisdom of Peggy Freydberg, who began writing poetry at 90-years-old. In the ten years that followed she wrote honest, searing, gorgeous poems that share with the reader her powerful insights and wisdom into the many issues we are all dealing with. Peggy explores the universal experiences of love, loss, aging, desire, fear, and one’s place in the world.
Unlike most poetry books, Poems from Pond gives you a full view of the author and the inspiration behind her work. A foreword by writer and NPR podcaster Nancy Aronie and an afterword by Tamara Sloan, Peggy’s granddaughter, fill in the blanks of this amazing woman’s life. Poems from the Pond is full of inspiration, including the important message for today’s Baby Boomers that creativity has no age limit!
