    Diana has one of the most fascinating biographies that I have ever read. I feel enriched just for having read it. I, too, love animals and would love to meet her.
    By the way, her poetry is very good.

    Diana, queen of words.

    One of my all time most favorite poetesses.

    The best I have seen for long, good poetic understanding and structure, content without direct preaching. Pleasure to read.

Goodbye

I could find no poetry in your soul;
I couldn’t teach your heart to sing;
You wouldn’t let my spirit fly;
And so I stand here on the moonlit beach
With icy water at my feet
And whistling wind around my ears.
With sad relief, I toss the ashes
Of our might-have-beens
Into the air, and as I do,
