  1. Anna (Diary of an Eccentric) says

    Thanks for introducing me to a new poet!

  2. Marie Ponsot has become a new favorite for me. I’m really enjoying her poetry online.

  3. Beth Hoffman says

    Fabulous line: She warned me, “Have nothing to lose.”

  4. I love the phrase “her once wild once young man” This poem reminds me of one of my favorite quotations from the novel The Moviegoer: “Before, I wandered as a diversion. Now I wander seriously and sit and read as a diversion.”

  5. I like this very much. The concept of wandering sitting still, the scent of the peddler’s wares, the grandmother who endures, endures. The unexpected rhymes.

  6. I like it! Sort of like a lighter version of When You Are Old by Yeats…
