      i actually write a lot of poetry but was unfamiliar with old's work.

      after reading that poem (my parents split up recently, the week of their 25th anniversary, actually) and the letter, i've decided to pick up some of old's literature.

        to the second one about the mom missing the daughter who went away to school.  This poem says so much about how you miss your kids but they are always part of you.  But the first one is excellent too- I wish I could photocopy it and pass it out at some bridal showers.
