Saranac Lake poet-clocksmith's new work of poetry.
Inside this book you may recognize the poetry you have always known you had inside you but never could put into words - for here is poetry about and for us all.
Life Times is a new collection of "poems for all of us" - an eloquent, yet unpretentious, celebration of the quiet and poignant every-day happenings, both joyous and sad, that make up our lifetimes. Many of the poems come eerily, touchingly, close to home as they describe pains and passions and plain times in a voice so familiar it could have been our own.
Poetry by Adirondack Center for Writing Award Winning Poets: Elaine Handley, Marilyn McCabe and Mary Sanders Shartle.
A young Lake Placid woman named Mary Landon wrote these poems in the 1930s. She wrote the first of them when she was 17 years old and already a year out of high school. She wrote the last of them when she was 23. This is a very unusual volume of poetry!
