About the Book
Still Sing is a collection of poems viewing human beings as the cosmos become aware of itself. They celebrate the resilience of men and women in facing their solitary existence in the universe with courage, humor. and determination despite their physical, emotional. and intellectual limitations.
The author suggests that total and successful human communication is ultimately not possible, and that in the end, one is left with only aural and verbal symbols to express the profound mysteries of existence. He expresses his amazement that despite that handicap, we continue to sing!
