Sweet Bedtime Story

Jane Fonda and Robert Redford pair up beautifully in Our Souls at Night, a romantic Neflix film that makes my heart sing. And, of course, I couldn’t resist writing a poem about it.  

“Help me get through each night, neighbor?”
A strange request coming from her.
She’s asking him to share her bed,
but not for sex, just talk instead.

Spouses they lost sometime ago.
And romance hopes seem rather low.
But who knows what their future brings?
We hope it’s filled with lovely things.

OUR SOULS AT NIGHT – a sweet movie.
Fonda and Redford work for me.
They play these roles with style and grace
in this fine film not rushed for pace.

Each character we get to know.
We watch their friendship slowly grow.
This motion picture was for me
a special treat I loved to see.

Las Vegas Lament


So many lives lost needlessly.

When will we learn; why can’t we see?

Tears for loved ones – an endless flow.

Action needed – we ought to know.

Some say don’t talk about it now.

Free speech needed for that, and how!
