Memories are all we have of those we've lost. Except, perhaps, for the guilt….

It Won't Be Long. Even in death the concepts of faith, love and time - oh so little time - can bring the promise of reuniting us. God Was Your Closest Friend. No More Tears To Cry. When death takes someone from us, we have to say goodbye. Even if it's only within our own minds. We all deal with loss in our own ways. The one common factor, though - is the expectation that there will be a time when we encounter our departed loved one again Life often just doesn't seem fair - especially when we're faced with losing a very special and very cherished child.

So Long For Now. When our grandparents pass on, it's comforting to know that they will always be with us in spirit and in our hearts! The thought of missing a loved one evokes the image of a lovely rose for this wonderful poet. Friends Until The End. You Meant So Much. Suicide has no glory - Yet it certainly leaves an horrific aftermath with loved ones. Even our interpretation of death benefits from the right perspective.

And, perhaps, from acceptance. Maybe the only thing that hurts worse than saying goodbye is not having the chance to say it. I Buried My Daughter Today. The loss of a loved one is very difficult. Some days are worse than others, but the feelings never go away - the hoping, wishing that somehow things could be different With life comes death - When it takes our beloved grandparents, the feeling of loss is overpowering When we lose a dear friend, our familiar world seems to become a different place - one without joy or happiness.

Finding an inner peace takes time. Death has hit all of us in one way or another - either the death of a friend or family member. This poem was written soon after the poet's loss of a beloved parent. We all want to visualize our parents as young and vibrant, but they do become older and more frail.

It's important then to return to them, those sacrifices they made for us earlier in life. Eliot or William Carlos Williams, and Paterson was, from its very conception, intended to be a 'detailed reply' SL, to the Eliot bias of modern poetry.

To Williams, Eliot "had moved into a vacuum with his poem," in Mariani's words, and taken American poetry with it. While Williams noted that Pound, in Mariani's words, "had managed to lift the language to new heights," he had also "deformed the natural order of speech at times Williams, according to Mariani, concluded that tackling Paterson meant "to find a way beyond Eliot's poetic, and beyond Pound's, as well I too have to escape from my own modes.

In December , he wrote Laughlin, "I write and destroy, write and destroy. Williams also studied Pound's Cantos for clues on how to structure the large work he had in mind.

Muriel Rukeyser 's US1 also caught Williams' attention for its use, with a technical skill that seemed to rival Pound's in The Cantos , of such diverse and seemingly prosaic materials as notes from a congressional investigation, an X-ray report and a physician's testimony on cross-examination. So much has to be thought out and written out there before we can have any solid criticism and consequently well-grounded work here.

In , Williams read a poem by Byron Vazakas in Partisan Review that would help lead him to solutions in form and tone for Paterson. Vazakas had written to Williams before the poem had appeared. Williams now wrote Vazakas, praising him for the piece and urging him to collect some of his work into a book.

He also asked to see more of Vazakas's work as soon as possible. According to Mariani, the way Vazakas combined "a long prose line" and "a sharply defined, jagged-edged stanza" to stand independent of each other yet remain mutually complementary suggested a formal solution.

In his preface to the revised edition of Paterson , editor Christopher MacGowan points out that, even with Williams' protracted challenges in finalizing the poem's form, he "seems to have always felt close to the point of solving his formal problems. This delayed its appearance in print to June Williams saw the poet as a type of reporter who relays the news of the world to the people. He prepared for the writing of Paterson in this way:. I started to make trips to the area.

I walked around the streets; I went on Sundays in summer when the people were using the park, and I listened to their conversation as much as I could. I saw whatever they did, and made it part of the poem. With roots in his [short] poem [also entitled] "Paterson," Williams took the city as "my 'case' to work up.

It called for a poetry such as I did not know, it was my duty to discover or make such a context on the 'thought'. While writing the poem, Williams struggled to find ways to incorporate the real world facts obtained during his research in preparation for its writing. On a worksheet for the poem, he wrote, "Make it factual as the Life is factual-almost casual-always sensual-usually visual: Williams considered, but ultimately rejected, putting footnotes into the work describing some facts.

Still, the style of the poem allowed for many opportunities to incorporate 'factual information', including portions of his own correspondence with the American poet Marcia Nardi and fellow New Jersey poet Allen Ginsberg as well as historical letters and articles concerning figures from Paterson's past like Sam Patch and Mrs.

Cumming that figure thematically into the poem. The Poetry Foundation biography on Williams notes the following critical response to Williams' Modernist epic:. In the process of calling Paterson an "'Ars Poetica' for contemporary America," Dudley Fitts complained, "it is a pity that those who might benefit most from it will inevitably be put off by its obscurities and difficulties.
