This book is a manifesto on the wisdom, strength, needs and desires of older women – the rising demographic in our country. It is also a testament to women of the previous generation, “who have brought us safe this far.” The poems are inspired by working the earth in Decatur, Georgia; a love of the Southern Appalachians; the current political situation; the experience of writing in Italian; and the status of older women in relationship to men. Included also are two short prose pieces – a life story in fable format and a summary of Runyon’s work as a dancer/choreographer. The book affirms that older women will not go gently into this goodnight, the last phase of our lives. Louise Morgan Runyon is a dancer/choreographer, political activist, urban farmer, student of Italian, and former steelworker as well as poet. Please go to "Poetry" page on this site for sample poems.
