Gems of Wisdom: A Book of Elder Poetry and Prose
I think creativity is the key to the fountain of youth. Gems of Wisdom reflects the creative genius, and wisdom that comes with age. This anthology is a marvelous, brave book, a testimonial to the power of age, and to the spirit. The prose pieces in this book bring the reader into the dreams, hopes and insights of those who embrace age. As we live in an anti-age society, this anthology is important, as it represents the age pride and the importance of the creative process. This is a masterpiece! And everyone at every age should read this book.

The anthology by AgeSong abounds with playful poems of times well lived! It's a fine thing to read the poem stories that sing of love songs, along with hardship from people who are now in their seventies and eighties, even nineties. The humor will delight you. You may wonder what you'll be saying at that age!
