Poem to my dear friend Renee' Duke

Goodbye Hello Renee’

I am blessed to know thee,

Oh blythe spirit.

Thou hath spread thy wings

and flown again.

And circling will find another

place to light and sing thy song

so we may again take joy in hearing,

and learning that which thou may teach

through thy eternal wisdom and fire

that resides within thee.

I for one will miss thy smile and the light

in thine eyes, and the flowers that bloom

around thy feet as thou passeth by.

I will miss the birds that sing around thee all the while.

I know thee now and forever,

My dear friend Renee’.

Return soon and again bless us with thy smile.

  1. Good man Sledge. My wife was on course with her at Flag, she was 80 or so years old. I met her one time and she was wonderful.
