Aunt Helen
By Michael Copeland 

The heat of the Summer sun
bathed the empty chair where
she once sat reciting her poems.
Dust covered the memory of her,
and coated the sound of her voice,
adding rasp to her wordiness.
Renowned in her day, for words
of solace and calming influence,
her words upheld in fact.
Her joyous life was there for all
to see, and revel in, as her fame
was family lore.
She was my inspiration to write,
to rhyme, to not, and to move
forward with stories of my own.
