Poetry In Plain Sight - Elizabeth Yahn Williams

I have to put this out there. Most of the older women poets will not allow me to record them or their poems. I totally understand and respect that decision. I think it is a mistake.

People need to see and hear from our elder poets. Not just because they are "older" but because they offer a bridge to what was and what is in the here and now. Growing older is not a toxic condition no matter what the advertisers try to tell us.

Take your choice, grow older or cease to be? Then again in Elizabeth Yahn William's poem maybe there is a choice to come back like ___________. This is her poem entitled On Reincarnation: Or, Bury the Dead at Hallow's Eve.

For more information about Elizabeth or her writing partner Robert Thomas Lundy you can visit their web site at
