Ah, this is so lovely. Reminds me of the carriage ride Emily Dickenson took in her poem where she could not stop for death. I love the thought of a carriage ride to heaven just for poets. That is a fantastic image in tribute to Brooke. So lovely...six stars for you.

    Hello Joy. Thank you for the marvelous comments. I was inspired by Emily and 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.

A beautiful tribute to our dear friend and mentor, Adewpearl. Your imagery of her carriage full of dandelions being drawn to the cosmos is ever so compelling. Well said my friend. We will all miss her so.

She was a most wonderful poet-soul who moved with slow and steady friendly pace through the fields of Fanstory., Great extended metaphor tribute! I enjoyed this, as I am sure she did too, reading over your shoulder from her serene chariot!

Great flow and rhymes. Great imagery. Favorite passage (because she wrote of Dandelions so often!):

Leisurely they trot down lanes
past fields of dandelion,
then slowly take an upward turn
to head straight for Orion.


Warmly,
rd

    Yes, I forgot to mention noticing you were emulating her style. She'd love it!I just recently watched a fascinating fifty year tribute on PBS to Peter Paul and Mary with lots of old footage and interviews live with Peter and Paul. True musical artists. My parents worked with Harry Chapin on a film, once. Great people!

    Warmly,

Nicely written and heartfelt tribute to a Loved friend. The format concept used leads me always to read the poem left to right then left side down (still makes sense)
Then right side down as someone wrote a poem that way, At any rate this is a excellent tribute to a Loved friend.

I am enjoying reading about this character, who meant so much to so many Fanstorians. She reviewed a couple of my earliest writings here on FanStory, but we only barely overlapped, so regrettably I have nothing personal to offer on her.

An exceptional poem which, with its deceptively simple cadence, mirrors much that was the unique talent of Brooke. She was a great help and support to me when I first joined FanStory, and I used to gain great pleasure from her poetry.
