This is wonderful. I had a teacher who did the same for me. She was the only one who I felt loved me and rooted for me. There will be other readers who are able to identify with your account. This is a lovely tribute for caring teachers who changed our lives. Many of us are who we are because of that teacher. Thank you. I'm voting for this.

    You are EXACTLY right. All it takes is one person to change your life for the better forever. I'm glad you experienced that, as well, Liz. Thank you for this lovely review. xo

My bad. I guess I'm the one who needs spelling lessons. You may beat me as you please, Mistress Rachel, as long as you wear leather.

Congratulations on second place.

    Okay, that's really funny. I love your snarky sense of humor. But it's correct. An elegy is a funeral dirge... because after all, this is supposed to be a poem about SADNESS. (Do I get my stars back now?)

Your nonette is fitting recognition of a teacher who helped you through a challenging part of your youth. It speaks well, in verse, of dependability, caring, help in finding your strength when you felt you had none - in very few words.
Visually, the form is well chosen because it shows the full attention given (9syllables) which, as you healed, became less and less required (1). Well done.

Aw, this is quite sad, especially because the beloved worked in a field that of utmost importance -- education.

If this is non-fictional, my condolence on your loss. I felt the loss and appreciation for this teacher.

Nice execution of the nonet poetic form as well. Good luck in the contest.
