For Etheree

with kindness,
to beauty and faith
of one who yearned to leave
this world a better place than
when she arrived summers ago.
Her laughter sounded so clearly that
her poetry cushioned the calloused hearts.

    I loved the poem For Etheree. It reminds me of others that were the same. Thanks for this.


  5. I thought I loved the Red Birds…but, blue…being my favorite color…This bird is at the top of my list!

    What a nice tribute! And the bird is gorgeous!


    • Oh, what beauties those little birds were! They are not common around my place, but they were so delightful to watch as they found the seed. As for my poem, I hope that can be said about me and my writings.
