- Sweet Violet -
Sweet and smiling Violet, who loves life and living so…
To find the words to sing of you, I call the muses hither!
On your old isle, across the sea where salt winds blow,
Your words reach out to us, and never once do wither.
Between the spaces of your phrases, I detect the light…
Of a spirit who is filled with joy, and sometimes sorrow.
But through it all you shine like all the stars of the night!
Sending slivers of echoes that beckon, for the morrow.
Sweet and smiling Violet, your words reach so deeply,
Into places only you can take us, upon your life’s path!
We are your fellow adventurers upon the errant journey,
And when you speak, such rousing sounds that laugh…
They flow from your lips like ambrosia, gracing our ears.
A clear mind can see the beauty and become entranced,
By the spell your poetry weaves, like sunlight that sears!
You are an honest artist, as before us you have danced.
Sweet and smiling Violet, I am happy that you are here,
Sharing this space between spaces, deep underground…
Bringing us close to your world, whenever we are near:
To the words you spin, with skill, to make artful sound.
You live, you love, you give us so much with such care,
And for that we are always grateful, for all that you are.
Thank you for all your words that you choose to share!
You are far more than just a poet, you are a shining star.
