*Thank you Marge. You lift my spirits more than you know,
and I hope this will show my genuine appreciation, as truly,
you touch my heart daily with both your poetry,
and your heart-filled responses to all.

Her Gentle Spirit (in tribute to Marge)


On silent wings with eagle's sight,
She comes to me on wing'ed flight;
Profoundly, we are intertwined,
Of kindred spirit, through these lines.

Much more than words upon a page,
For rich and true, her heritage;
A wise and gentle spirit calls,
Beyond the realm of Passion's walls.

A tender nature, to behold,
As sweetly penned, her words unfold;
The essence of her soul instills,
The spirit 'neath her feathered quill.

To give in kind, the love she shares,
To touch another unaware;
Her light within, envelopes deep,
For what she sows, is that she reaps.

Compassion floats across the miles,
To grace another with a smile;
And back to her, these feelings flow,
With tender love, dear heart bestow.

And so my spirit rises high,
To drift toward your moonlit sky;
And settles there, by river's bank,
Beside you ... softly giving thanks.

.

Kit, What a tender and loving tribute to a very passionate and compassionate friend, whose halmark is her love and her efforts spent in giving.
She will treasure this poem because she will recognise the truth of it and relish in its beauty

Kit~
Oh, my friend - this is so lovely.
You know the tears came and were quickly
dried by the loving smiles of friends -
Serenity~ Juliet~ Elizabeth~ Claire~ and
my new found friend Artistic~

Our spirits are indeed entwined ...
forming the circle of friendship that
reaches out and draws others into our care.
That is a duty of friendship that we derive
so much pleasure in performing.

I do thank you my sweet spirit ...
I reap much more than I sow.

Love to each of you -
may the circle continue to expand with the
grasping of hands in friendship and love.
~*Marge*~

I don't think you could have picked a more fitting poet to do a tribute to.  Your beautiful words express your heart and many of ours deeply and I know that Marge will forever cherish you for these words as well as your friendship.  

Marge....we love you.....muchly...can you tell yet?

Kit,
Excellent writing here.  This just screams MARGE!!!!       Loved it very much!!    
LW

---------------------------------------------

Marge~

'Tis my humble opinion my friend, that this describes you most perfectly!!  

you are all this and so much more
for opening up friendship's door
with a smile or supportive words
the sweetest sounds we've ever heard

you reach out to those in need
gracing them with your genuine deeds
we are all the lucky ones here
to have a friend that is so dear

Love ya!!
  
Lone Wolf

I have to agree Marge that you are always there for us, and responding, I don't know how you do it, but you do.
Marge your beauty is in your words
they hold us in awe,
Your kindness is always there
for us to embrace
In the most saddest times
your there to pick us up
In the happiest times your there
to laugh along
Your truly a gift send to us here
and we appreciate your kind spirit
and your smile that lights up this room
time and time again.
Thanks Marge for caring.

kit-
this is absolutely beautiful, and so
perfectly marge.  she is a very special
person, and we are so priviledged to have
her here at passions.  she is one of the
first people who really made me feel welcome
and appreciated here at passions.  this is a
terrific tribute to her.  

marge-
just have to make sure you know how much i
truely appreciate you.  your kind responses
to my poems mean so much.  you are such a
wonderful person, and i'm so glad to have
the priviledge of calling you 'my friend'.

love you,
     -vicky

heart, you have not truely met the poet.
