Item details

This poem is by the late Jim Carroll and is featured in the film 'The Basketball Diaries'; staring Leonardo DiCaprio as Jim Carroll. It is designed and printed by Rosemary's Designs and mounted in a stylish 5x5 ornate black or white frame.

'The Basketball Diaries' is based on the early life of Jim Carroll growing up in Manhattan, New York City. This poem is one of my personal favourites. For me, it reminds us that our lives are short in this world so we should look to the positive and take note of the silver lining to each rain cloud.

All the frames we use are of a high standard, made in the UK using wood from sustainable forests, and have a wall hanging hook plus a stand. We package our item very carefully to ensure they reach you unharmed, although with frames we do recommend perspex in place of glass as it is less likely to break in the post. Please refer to our postage and breakages policy for more information.

You may buy the unframed print if you prefer:
