With his 2013 collection of romantic poetry titled “Love Poems and Musings from an 86 Year Old Widower” (published by iUniverse), author Lester Greenman inspires love and romance in readers. Greenman, who was married to his late wife for 63 years, dedicates his work to her. This year, his book will reach a wider audience with a new promotional video, soon to be available on YouTube.

“Love Poems and Musings from an 86 Year Old Widower” embraces the power of love and artfully renders its lasting effects on a person even when a loved one is gone. Greeman’s poetry captures the joys and sorrows he and his wife endured together and how their love made them stronger. Greenman hopes to instill in readers young and old a “renewed feeling of romance” with this collection of poetry.

An excerpt from “Love Poems and Musings from an 86 Year Old Widower”:

Romance the greatest mental
Gift to mankind.
Yes I said it.
What more wonderful than the
Overwhelming feeling of love.”
