I only know Brooke through the loving posts of you who were her fans and friends, but it is obvious how much she was revered. This is a beautiful poem - ethereal and loving. May she read it and find peace.

    Hello Sherry. Thank you for the wonderful comments. I tried to emulate Brooke's style in this poem, for it is one I am fond of myself. She had a great influence and was a wonderful encouragement for me, even though I was only on the site for about four months before she became ill. We talked of the Valley Forge Music Fair, where we both went to hear great popular music, from Peter, Paul and Mary to Harry Chapin. She was, indeed, a dew pearl.

    That is so sweet. I know you will miss her, but now she is out of pain and at peace. Blessings, dear one

Hello rspoet
Such a nice tribute to Brooke, what made your poem so good was this part--
eisurely the horses trot down lanes past fields of dandelion,
then slowly take an upward turn to head straight for Orion and all of Heaven is revealed.

This was really a beautiful tribute, RS Poet. The imagery was breathtaking. The flow was really good as was the rhythm of the piece. The ending was really nice as well. Good job.

This is lovely Robert. There is a sincerity about your words - not just a poem, but words for someone you liked and admired. Moving, well worded and without any undue sentimentality. Brooke would like this one. I like your author notes as well - interesting. Warm regards Dorothy x

This beautiful, skillfully-written poem pays a sweet tribute to a great poet,
a great lady. Your use of specific details to create the essence of Brooke is
appealing. Last stanza--my favorite

Brooke was surely a one-of-the-kind. I think she touched almost everybody's heart in a positive way on Fanstory. She had numerous fans and everybody loved her. Thank you for sharing.

Hi RS,

This is such a lovely tribute to our sister poet, Brooke. I did not have the pleasure of knowing her because she was apparently here during the decade I was absent from the site. Very nicely written, my friend.

Thank you for sharing.

Jan

I missed the connection between Ms. Baldwin and Orion, though I read some of her poetic references to dandelions...although Orion, especially if you can include nearby Canis Major, is the finest view the night sky has to offer...excellent tribute to a fine poet.

    Hello LIJ. Thank you for the marvelous comments. I tried to emulate Brooke's style in this poem, for it is one I am fond of myself. If there is a path to heaven, I suspect it goes past the stars of Orion, though they are scattered at various depths.

I love reading these. The respect for her was so great, do you think she had any idea? I'm sure she knew she was loved on here but I hope she knew how much she was loved. Great job

A very well-written poem and tribute to a beloved poet and friend. Physically she is not here anymore, but she and her poetry certainly lives on in the hearts of the ones who knows her.
