You will not be forgotten in a lush forest of life’s lessons, or on a solitary path into the gloaming. We feel your presence and hear a voice leading from your poems. Now, in blindness, what more will you give? Does hope still hold? What brings joy? Your name lives… in words, in trees “the only hope is to be the daylight.” ~ W.S. Merwin
