Each chapter of the new book AGING JOYFULLY is introduced by one of Leona Choy's poems. Dr. Starr's Chapter 10 exploring the question, "SHALL I MARRY AGAIN?" is launched by the following poem:


God made the human heart
in such a way that if it sings
it cannot sing alone.

Nor is man ordained
to live a solitary life
to work alone
or play alone.
He seeks a partner
with whom to share his joy.

Man cannot love without response
from another heart that echoes his
to which he can relate.
He needs another soul
with whom he can communicate
in satisfied oneness
displacing his isolation
completing his identity
with a complementary heart
that sings a counterpart melody
to his song of love.
