    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.

Light of heart and all alone,

In the windy mountain weather
And the winter sun.

Clad in freshest light and sweet
Far and far the city lay
With her suburbs at her feet
Round the laughing bay.

Like an eagle lifted high
Half the radiant world I scanned,
Till the deep unclouded sky
Circled sea and land.

No more was ...
