Poems by Carol A. Armstrong
In the enormously imaginative poems of Everything Waits To Be Noticed, Carol Armstrong draws upon the full range of a life deeply and richly lived. She relates the experience of aging with youthful zest, looks the imperfections of life squarely in the face, embracing them, her "irrepressible merriment obliterating darkness." The child in her is given free rein, and also the sage. Her work is sometimes saucy, and always smart in all senses of the word. Above all, it expresses love.

She teaches us how to be better at being human.” —John Powers, Fresh Air
