Published by Trafford
After Midnight: Poems and Pontifications presents a collection of poetry written over a span of sixty years. Manfredos early writings reflect the idealism, spirituality, and wonderment of youth, questioning the meaning of life and describing dreams and aspirations. The collection then traces the evolution of his style into a sophisticated and passionate maturity. During the last score of years, his poetry demonstrates an acceptance of the realities of life, sometimes expressing a sense of both resignation and whimsy. As a life presented in poetry, After Midnight offers a journey of emotional growth, which finally and inevitably arrives at an awareness and graceful acceptance of mortality. Gettin Old I look in the mirror and say a prayer Of thanks to the Gods that my face is still there. My locks are much thinner My face is less fair. Glad Ive lived long enough to lose my hair. Dying young, while good-lookin, Aint a bargain to me. Livin long, causin trouble, Thats where I want to be. So Ill linger a while longer Kinda messin with you. When I finally depart Youll be glad & I will too!
