Poetic Memorial by Judith Prodon

Ever since poetry originated, poets have faced the emotion of grief. Such a personal emotion has mystified and overwhelmed the greatest of minds and the greatest of poets.

Judith Pordon's thoughtful and personal tribute creates an emotional and complimentary recollection of a personal friend. Her timing is perfect and lends power to every line.

Even at seventy eight
she was dazzling.

Up early, happily greeting

her worm in sight.
It wouldnt get away.

Even so, she always
had time to pause,

happier to see me
than anyone else.

For her greeting every morning,
even God would be grateful.

I think she'll get the job.
