Cherry Mountain

Cherry Mountain
In memory of:  Poet Nancy Simpson

Above the frost line
on Cherry Mountain,
daffodils spread a quilt

on Valentine's Day.
The rain crow cooing
above the frost line.

A breeze whispers your name,
muse flowing like a brook
on Cherry Mountain.

The mountain writer
leaves a legacy of words,
daffodils spread a Lone Star quilt.

              --Brenda Kay Ledford

Nancy was a dear friend.  Like many other writers, I studied poetry under her.  She was a mentor to many people and always encouraged us to express our creativity.  We will miss her very much.

  3. Such a lovely poem that honors Nancy, Brenda Kay. Her love for flowers and poetry and her mountain bind together in a quilt.
