Escape

There’s torment in the wind today,
It screams with anguish on its way;
And something in its frenzied cry
Resounds within me in reply:

Oh frantic wind – I know! I know!
And I will join you as you go –
Escaping dread, unseen distress,
We’ll leap into the wilderness,
And whirl this fright and fury out,
And whip away all clinging doubt;
Then softly glide back in the night –
Released and calmed by our wild flight.

– Eloise Blakslee Roach

After Gerry’s mother died of cancer in 1976, his family put together this collection of her poetry. Eloise had written the poems over many years, often just scribbled on the back of an envelope, but they found and organized what turned out to be quite a collection. Using words as her vehicle, Eloise shared her gift of sensitivity toward the beauties and complexities of life. With her pondering pen, she wove colors of universal appeal into the fabric of time, expressing joy, sadness, love, despair, passion, humor and wonderment over the adventure of being human. Eloise was the first person to swim the length of Wisconsin’s Lake Geneva, and Gerry got much of his athleticism from her. She also instilled in him a sense of wonderment and awe for nature.
This 148-page, soft-cover book captures 127 of Eloise Roach’s poems, and remains a tribute to her spirit. The poems are organized into six categories: Daily Living, Family, Friendship, Love, Nature and Wisdom. The tome also has 10 black-and-white photographs. Swim On Gentle Swan might just make a perfect stocking stuffer for your loved ones, and you can add it to your existing order with little additional cost.
