In this collection of somber poems written from the heart, the poet pays homage to her beloved husband of 41 years. Diagnosed with pancreas cancer in 2015, Roy Joslin bravely lived with the disease until his death in the spring of 2018. These poems echo the grief of the cancer journey so many face today, yet they offer the promise of hope and healing to those who remain behind.
“This book is the shrine Patricia Ann Joslin came to poetry to build. In it, she describes her husband so vividly that we feel we must have known him too. And in the course of these pages, we come to know her, his widow, as we walk the woodland trails she walked with him and now alone. We are privileged to witness how faith re-blossoms.”
—Lola Haskins, author of Asylum: Improvisations on John Clare, Not Feathers Yet: A Beginner’s Guide to the Poetic Life, and others
“With luminous grace, Patricia Ann Joslin’s poems sing love songs in a voice both tender and tough. This stunning collection shows how poetry can redeem grief by acts of remembering. Combining the keen eye of a Mary Oliver with the ancient wisdom of a Rumi, I’ll Buy Flowers Again Tomorrow offers hard-earned hope and healing. These poems are for all of us who have suffered—or will suffer—loss.”
—Mary Alice Dixon, Pushcart Prize nominee, award-winning poet, and longtime hospice volunteer
