    I have been fortunate to read some of Enid’s fine work. What a poet! As an aspiring poet, I wish I could emulate her poetic style, so that I can capture the hearts of my readers as she did mine. Even though she has passed on her great work will live on for years to come.

Best Poem of Enid Derham

The Suburbs

MILES and miles of quiet houses, every house a harbour,
Each for some unquiet soul a haven and a home,
Pleasant fires for winter nights, for sun the trellised arbour,
Earth the solid underfoot, and heaven for a dome.

Washed by storms of cleansing rain, and sweetened with affliction,
The hidden wells of Love are heard in one low-murmuring voice
That rises from this close-meshed life so like a benediction
That, listening to it, in my heart I almost dare rejoice.
