    There is a splendid Guardian article on the poems referred to by Edith Thomsen, directly below, which includes 16 of the poems. If I can't include a link to it in this post, I suggest an online search which includes poet's name and the topic - it worked for me!

    Some years ago, Carol Ann Duffy collected som poems of ageing from other pioets. Unfortunately I do not know the title of this anthology. It cotains poema from among others Roger McGough, Nina Cassion and many more.
    Can you help me?
    King regards

and as you grew,
light gathered in you, two clear raindrops
in your eyes,
warm pearls, shy,
in the lobes of your ears, even always
the light of a smile after your tears.
Your kissed feet glowed in my one hand,
