You know, I tried to let you go
To where the air is rare
I tried to let this July alone
But felt the feeling stare

Right into this soul of mine
Where memories take my heart
So just a brief wave, hello
Knowing tender poets never part.

Yes, we miss you much, my friend,
Your wise ways, and clever words
And strong you were until the end
In a voice imagination heard

Deep into this soul of mine
Where memories take my heart
So just a brief wave, hello
Knowing tender poets never part.

In memory…

A beautiful tribute of remembrance from a beautiful poetess, for a wonderful poet.  He is missed, and this paints that achingly.  Thank you for writing this.

I was reading in my library the other day
and came across some replies of his...
he was so gracious and kind spirited...
and his love of poetry was always evident in his responses. Thank you for this lovely reminder of a special poet Kari.

You know what, Karilea ?
Just this morning ... Wilfred paid visit in spirit to my thoughts~

I was sitting outside, gathering poetic thoughts ... and he flooded me with his admiration of Walter Benton poetry.

And now to find this ... doesn't surprise me in the slightest~

Thank you~

I've missed his words, your tribute to this writer coming at a much needed time, Karilea.  Thank you!

The stars will shine when I am gone,
the earth will turn on as before,
the gulls, still race along the shore,
the morning star, still kiss the dawn

I never knew the man, but your tribute here is a good indication of what he must have meant to so many people.  It's always a tragedy when a contemporary poet dies... all we can really do is grieve, and give his poetry the attention it deserves...

People like you keep poets alive, Karilea...

Faith is a fine invention
When gentlemen can see
But microscopes are prudent
In an emergency.
