The Grown-ups

Kārlis Vērdiņš

“The Grown-ups” is the fourth collection of poetry by Kārlis Vērdiņš published during the last seven years.

It focuses on feelings that a person has when separating from their youth with its illusions about limitless future possibilities and realizing the life’s restrictedness and fragility. These feelings relate to the cycle of birth-maturation-death which is reflected in the collection as joy for birth of a new life, life observations of contemporaries and epitaphs to dear deceased ones.

The book is supplemented with an audio of the Sigma group including three songs with lyrics by Kārlis Vērdiņš.
