    Tribute

     Against  glorious scenes of rapture, she did appear

         Whether known or not was pure conjecture

     

    Laid resting, none could be better

        Than the one, she would say, who is the rester

     

    Memoirs, memoirs, begin again

        Sight and sound and broken bend

    Poised in her craft and much to lend

     

    She was not from here, don’t be mistaken

        Tripped from a planetary gyration

     

    Although her stature of grace was tall

        Adorned with loveliness, she gave all

     

    Even though she beckoned awesome chances

         Met with many marvelous glances

     

    She spent hours in darker dances

         Transfixed by other powerful trances

     

    Other phenomenal worlds awaited

         and charmed the one that was abated

     

    In other escapes, she has not faded

             Come, come they say, your fate is not slated

     

    If not for family, some would say

            she could not stay another day

     

              .....She did not like this world, anyway

    Enigmatic and somewhat sad, I hope that she is glad and happy now.

    Very good meter. "If not for family, some would say she could not stay another day" This stanza and much of this poem reminds me of someone. She decided to stay for family. Broke a heart with her decision. Mine. I enjoyed reading this.

    I think mainly, I am speaking of my own self in this poem and someone that passed that I admired, too.

    The true philosopher and the true poet are one, and a beauty, which is truth, and a truth, which is beauty, is the aim of both.

    Ralph Waldo Emerson, American Poet (1803-1882)
