Act V Scene I: Poems

Stanley Moss

Vibrant new poems from the award-winning nonagenarian poet who Rosanna Warren calls Undaunted, outrageously alive… At 95 years old, Stanley Moss, winner of the 2016 National Jewish Book Award for Poetry, is writing some of the best poems of his life. Here are new poems written in 2018 through early 2020 and some rediscovered earlier poems never-before published. Death is ugly, to hold Christ’s dying for all of us is beautiful. I believe in the nothingness of everything–crumbs ashes, the date, dust, under a female moon. I consider notes, words, pigments, rocks have a certain significance. Bet your life creation is inconsequential. I read Goethe for beautiful meanings. Seeing one painting, he wrote, changed his life. What can one person do? Damn proximity, compose before you decompose, shout help! help! in the ear of Moses, make a hero of an ant in a wild rose. –from A Shout in Act V Scene 1
