Reviews for brass button
Isca chapter 1 . 6/24/2009
"So that we can grow old together." This line is incredibly sorrowful and beautiful. I love that the speaker is so lonely that she has to befriend an inanimate object. She wants the button to 'see the sun' because she herself cannot appreciate its light in its entirety. I also love the connection betwen the generations in this poem-the button connects the speaker's love and loneliness to her children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, etc. This is an excellent poem. :D
