If in Later Years
Ronald E. Moore

If In Later Years  

is filled with poems of depth and insight that provoke, engage, surprise, and astound.  Reading Ron Moore's second collection of poetry takes readers on journeys around the world and back through the ages of time.  Each poem is written with great insight, learning, and craft, and each invites multiple readings and reflection.

From a Tibetan monk sitting in silence and contemplating the atom, to a love affair with Buenos Aires, Moore takes his readers on journeys that are both personal and profound.  While each poem has its own voice and beauty, Ron Moore shapes all of them with lyrical and mindful skill. Unafraid to tackle the hard questions of philosophy, aesthetics, consciousness, and art, he uses his poems to delve into themes of desire, loss, love, beauty, and the distant horizons of the mind.


This is an artistic book, and it succeeds quite notably. It presents the reader with strong themes, and the poetic sense of craft and awareness of tradition are not only competent but carried out with a sharp sense of elegance and imagination.

--Jim Hoggard, 2000 Texas Poet Laureate


If In Later Years surpasses all expectation.  It is wise and learned, and it has great beauty in its sadness.   It is loss and love--the mirror of our existence.  With its knowledge and beauty, it has the ability to reach out and move any audience.  It touches the inner sanctum of the heart.

--Karla Morton, 2010 Texas Poet Laureate
