Wave of the Day: Collected Poems
by Mary Elizabeth Winn

Published February 2017


For poet Mary Elizabeth Winn, who lived 94 years, graduating from Skidmore College at 84, the most profound issues revolve around relationship, and her poems reflect the impact these had on her life, as well as how she impacted others. Her poetry describes childhood, family, children, places lived in and traveled to with an abiding love for nature and a faith that can question and guide throughout a long life. Quiet and soft-spoken, these poems reveal a reflective  and deep-thinking woman. We are privileged to enter Mary Elizabeth Winn's now distant, yet still timely world of childhood, womanhood, and her surprising life as faithful friend and lover.

With an epilogue written for hospice workers, caregivers and families losing loved ones.
