All his life a lover of music, Bill Mayer was especially moved by the great composers' final works: among them, Schubert's, Verdi's, Richard Strauss's Four Last Songs. He wrote A Distance Apart in the last months of a long illness. Bill had always been a poet of the wondrous, the evocative meanings of every day things, of the dailiness of beauty and friendship and love. In his final poems, one finds a poet still in love with a life he does not want to lose, an earth he does not want to leave in which everything lives its amazing life, "all of us together, partners in the world."
