She begs not charity and she has enough money.
Even though the solitude and suffering.

    Weather you mean this to be comical or not. This is the funniest thing I've ever read. The off-handedness of the presentation like the gossip of old women is just so telling of the character that the poem displays as someone in dire need of a man for happiness. Which comes to be described as the needle in the haystack. What a sexual pun that is. It's the perfect cliche.

    I don't know how much of truth is there in the old saying but I am trying to understand if really someone has got to do
    something with the age to desire warmth.But an age for a brakdwn! ! ! Am I tending to agree with you? I fear I'm.

    The image I see from reading this poem is of an older woman seeking for love, seeking the human touch, and it is a poignant one. (Report) Reply

    Nimal, I think you're spot on about women in their forties (from my experience LOL) and I love the story you tell and the 'needle in the haystack' metaphor. Yes, the closeness of another body is so important at any age. A thoughtful and wise poem. love, Allie xxxxxxxxxxxx (Report) Reply
