RE-BLOG: The Tennessee Poet – In Memory of Walt Page #poetry #NaPoWriMo

For those of you who may not have heard the news. . .
Rest in peace, Walt.

Night Owl Poetry - Dorinda Duclos

Friends…for those of you who may not know, we lost a very dear friend in our poetry/WordPress community.  Those of us who had the privilege of knowing Walt Page, will always remember him as a kind and passionate man.  Walt passed away in March of this year.  Please keep his wife and sons in your prayers as well as his furry buddies, of which he had many.

A man full of heart
From the land of Tennessee
Words flowed from his pen
Explaining life, to a tee

Love for his wife,
His pups and his home
Around his land, his pride
Each day he would roam

We’d laugh over things
Our talks, I’ll never forget
That I didn’t get to say goodbye
Will always be my regret

I called him Sir Walt
And to him, I, Lady D
A knight in shining armor
To me, he’ll always be

So, thanks…

  2. A pleasure to delight myself with the reading of your well conceived verses in homage to that wonderful being who knew how to earn a place in your heart. From wherever he is, I am sure he must be proud of you.
    Receive a warm embrace of friendship from Peru.
