    What a beautiful poem about aging and loss. I think Ms Parker must be every man's poet for I have yet to find any emotion she ever portrayed that did not match my own... (Report) Reply

    And I will have a sprigged gown
    With lace to kiss my throat;
    I'll draw my curtain to the town,

    You'll find this lovely poem is more meaningful when you've reached 85, as I have. (Report) Reply
