This is a very lovely and skillfully-written poem that serves as a moving ]tribute to a great lady, an excellent poet. You've made superb use of specific details and the whitney examples.

That was one of Brooke's strengths, a gentle sort of wry wit. An excellent tribute, enriched by aptly chosen quotes. I wish I had Adewpearl's optimism and patience...

This is very touching, Pam. I never knew her but from all the tributes I have been reading, Brooke seems to have been a really fine person. May you find consolation in your grief.

My condolences to Brooke's family.

    I'm so sorry for your loss.

    God bless you.

    Thanks for that, Sandra. I didn't see the final note you had in the review. The family will appreciate that.

    You're welcome.
    If you can, please pass it on for me.

    It will appear in Robyn Corum's book for Brooke. You can go to her portfolio and click on "The Announcement" and look at the chapters plus the replies.

A paean for Brooke that also features a delightful little piece of her own. The rhyme (weeding/seeding) in Brooke's poem really lifts the form to a totally different level. This is an excellent example of why she was so revered on this site.
