Marie - a friend of WC - R.I.P.

A Poem by ANTO

I first encountered Marie on here a few years ago. She had been a poet here for many years before I joined. She didn't comment much on my writing to begin. I didn't know what to make of her. Many poet's here said the same in private. They thought her aloof. When I got to know the soul behind the best ballads on WC and the brief (but skilful and very vivid) poems, I knew her to be warm, witty, straight shooting and positive. Marie passed away last month. She will be sadly missed. 
Her writing speaks for itself. She bequeaths to the world a fine canon of work (published works too) which if you care to read it will show you who she really was. God Bless you Marie. x

My dear friend Marie, it truly pained me
To see the Return the Love! widget, this day on W.C.,  
List your avatar - 'twas then it came home to me 
That your great wit and your sponsorship I'll never
again see.
 
I remember your skills quite vividly ~
Once you penned the best snow-scape I ever did read
Then when I commended it - you admitted to me
That you'd never actually seen such, not personally.

One of the finest gentle-lady poets we'll ever see.
So fair of pen and commentary
One of our number - a mainstay of WC.
Queen of the Ballads - our dear Marie. (R.I.P.)

A lovely, heartfelt tribute, Anto.

I do not know this woman, I've only been here for a month, but the kindness in your words and tone, suggests to me that she must truly have been a wonderful person and a fine poet.

Thanks for this one, Anto.

Your tribute is quite touching, I remember Marie very well. When I was starting on WC she's already here. I remember the time how insightful and witty she is... I love her poems, her ballads was great, haiku was all precise and delicate at the same time. Also I remember how she touch us with her views on our words, how concise she is in so few words when she says something. I admire her wisdom and strong personality, that is truly hers... she is truly missed.

She used to read everything I posted. I miss her a lot as I'm sure yourself and others will. Every once in a while her daughter gets on her account and hangs out here a little bit. My first reaction is always the same--Marie's on. Then I catch myself. Nice writing.
