Overview

This poetry collection reflects a range of human experience and diverse poetic responses to timeless subjects: love, death, grief, loss, aging, illness, suicide, divorce, family, racism, war and peace, nature, longing, joy, and just trying to make sense of the world. There are twenty-eight poets (the work of two of the poets is published posthumously-one haiku having been dictated on the evening of the poet's death at age 101). The twenty-six living poets range in age from six years old to ninety. Some are nationally recognized published poets and for others, the poems in this collection are their first efforts. The title, "The Weird World Rolls On" is taken from a line in a poem written in the late 1800's by Rose Hawthorne Lathrop, daughter of Nathaniel Hawthorne.
