Her new book COMING OF AGE: My Journey To The Eighties is NOT a resume of her FEMINISM ; through the Women’s Movement, E.R.A., reproductive rights or her many contributions to making America a better, more inclusive society, BUT it is her need for Self-Definition as she comes into old age.

LAST SPRING by Madeleine Kunin

First the daffodils die,
then the tulips stiffen,
then the lilacs’ perfume
turns bitter own,
and the peonies slump
to their graves,
I mourn them,
each one,
like I never did before.
