For Wen…

*

Whiter than the swan on a lake

Whiter than the gull of the stream

Whiter than snow on the high-peak.

*

Like a wave of the sea from ebb to flood

Slender as the tall-birch, blowing…

Of a shape sweet as full-bodied clover, bobbing…

Of a colour fair as summer’s bright-morn, glowing…

Your presence, the dawning glory of the land.

*

Lovely the sun’s smile, rising…

Lovely the moon’s sheen, climbing…

 Lovely the stars gleam, shining…

 More lovely, the blush of your cheek.

*

 Love, Don x

    Your love comes through with every word. I know how heart-broken you all are, but keeping her alive for us heals us, too. Love to you, Alex, Nick, and of course Ani.

    Hugs and ❤ to you and Ani. Each time I think of her, I whisper a prayer for you all and her family. Therefore, you all are in my thoughts and prayers so often, as spring softly unfolds here and I say, "Hey, Sue! Look! the first Robin here!" 🙂

        I saw it and kept my promise to her, that I made, when it appeared I would never make it to visit her and she would never be here to explore our landscape, history, etc. I’ve gazing upon Orion’s Belt often the past few days, and I instantly thought of her when I saw the robin – I promised to say, once it was easier to just think it with intent, to do so – to have the ‘conversations’ we never got to have in person – I’m really hoping I ain’t flooding her universal email inbox/txt messaging just yet, but I just laugh at that thought – She will manage it just as well there as she did here – 🙂

    Such a loving poem from the depths of sadness, Stuart.
    I hope you are managing somehow and that poor Ani is comforting you as much as you are her. x
