Mollie Brooke Friedman was born in Rochester, N.Y. on November 28, 1911. She spoke six languages, played organ and piano, and had her own floral design studio in Rochester, NY.
Mollie began writing poetry at the age of eleven, publishing her first works at thirteen She continued writing sporatically throughout her life.
The collections in this book are from her early teen-age years and from her mid-fifties. They were discovered in a sealed barrel in her attic following her death in 1992.
Mollie's work is deeply introspective and rich with surprising imagery and unaplogetic emotion. Though highly personal, these poems have the power to speak to us all.
