Mary Poems, DruckerThe Mary Poems

14 January to 8 August 2015
by R. David Drucker

R. David Drucker [Dave] had been versifying for over five ­decades mostly for special occasions: birthdays, anniversaries, job ­changes, political events, weddings and ­funerals. The sudden, unexpected death of his wife Mary J. Drucker on January 14, 2015 induced in Drucker a fundamental transformation of his versifying to genuine heart-generated poetry.

This slim volume was forged in the crucible of grief Drucker desires to share with everyone who knew Mary and the wider world. With this work he has attempted to honor the anguish he is experiencing and the memory of his soul mate of three and a half decades.

Drucker, a trained anthropologist and archaeologist [Brown University BA, The University of Rochester MA, PhD], is completing a book on Mesoamerican calendar systems. He is a singer in three New Hampshire Seacoast choirs, a volunteer crew member on the Portsmouth based gundalow replica Piscataqua, a UNH Marine Docent, a member of Friendship Force, a board member of South Church in Portsmouth, and a Rotarian. He continues to write poetry daily in his Dover, New Hampshire home.
