I see you posted this in March, but for some reason (perhaps my own busyness) I didn't see it until today. It is a perfect blank verse, and so beautifully descriptive of Brooke's work. You managed to incorporate all her favorite things, from dandelions to fairies, reminding us all of how much we miss her... how she will never be forgotten by those who knew her. Thanks so much for sharing this. I miss you, too, favorite Teach.

    Thanks so much, dear friend. I'm so pleased you enjoyed this poem for Brooke. How tragic was her loss, but fortunately we still have her poetry to enjoy. I hope you are well and not affected by all of these power outages occurring in the northern part of the state.

    Yes, we had our power out for a couple of days and nights, even though we did not have a breath of wind in our neighborhood. Since we have a well, we were also without water, which was worse than no lights. But in the bigger scheme of things, it is pretty insignificant.

I've just returned to FS and it's sad to learn that Brooke is no longer with us in physical form although her spirit will endure in those of us who knew and admired her and loved her work. May she rest in peace.


Beautiful poem of tribute Ray. Enjoyable although bittersweet to read.

    HI Julia,

    How wonderful to see your review in my inbox! I hope you are doing well.

    Thank you for your very kind review. Brooke was special to so many of us. I still miss her poetic voice.

    I've not been active on the site for over a year or so and came back in to write the poem for Brooke.

    Stay well, my friend.
    -Ray

    Hello Ray, it's great to hear from you. Hope you are happy and healthy, and still writing. Life has had its ups and downs but I'm grateful for each moment. Happy that a few stalwarts are still onsite, Warren Rodgers, Rd, MissMerri et al. And that a great friend, Pearlecat, returned just after I did.

    Take care, my friend

    Blessings Julia

A wonderful poetic tribute to our friend, Brooke. She was truly a treasure with her knowledge of poetry and her sincere eagerness to share her wisdom. Your poem is exquisite and full of heartfelt emotion. Brooke would have truly loved it, PM.
Smiles,
Arya :-)

I am so pleased I am back from my cruise in time to catch your tribute to Brooke. I met Adewpearl in 2008 soon after I joined FanStory and found her to be greatly talented and caring. I always hoped she would be able to return to the site. But at least she lives on in our Hall of Fame. I admired your including her favorite daffodils and dandelions in your salute. Thank you for returning to FanStory to pay homage to our very own bard- Joan

Hi Ray. It's nice to see a posting of your on FanStory again. I remember you have mentioned Brooke in the past. I did not know this lady, but see that she was well respected and loved. Your poem gives honor to her as a person and as a poet. Marilyn

This is a beautifully written tribute to Brooke. She did write so well about many things and spring brought forth some lovely works from her.

Hi, moutainwriter,

I read through this Brooke tribute and enjoyed, appreciated the essence of remembering. I mostly read through prose, but adewperl was a special kind of poet writer. I enjoyed her triolets so much i.... a prose only kind of girl, found myself giving them a shot.

Have been missing her poems for a long while.

This is beautifully written and expresses the deep appreciation you had for this person. I didn't know her, but she must have been pretty special to elicit such beautiful thoughts.

So good to see something of your work again, but so sad that it has to be prompted by sad though inevitable news.

I barely knew the lady as our time at FS only slightly overlapped. Consequently I have left the eulogies to others such as yourself, who know what they are talking about.

In the midst of all the sadness it was a pleasure to read this excellent stanzaic blank verse. This is a form of which we see too little these days.

I recently ran a class on rhyme here, and Dean Kuch reminded us of what you apparently named as 'subliminal assonance'. I thought it an excellent title for a device officially untitled and it was with great pleasure I noticed how you had used it here to conclude you tribute.

    Thanks so much, Jim, for this exceptional review and your very kind comments. I wish you had been able to know Brooke. You would have liked her, and she you.

    I hope all is going well with you.
