    dotsAve Atque Valedots
    -------------------------------------------


    Such poetry imperial,
    Came from his fevered pen alone,
    Like potent spells carved into stone.
    Now shadows fall.

    Like mead drunk on a dreamscape mall,
    Twice heady in its spicy foam,
    He and his gift have been called home.
    Now shadows fall.

    His words may stir a winter squall,
    Or just as easily have ceased
    The storms brought by the harsh northeast.
    Now shadows fall.

    His words a force centripetal
    To whirl the spirit high, aloft,
    Yet lovely and so feather soft.
    Now shadows fall.

    His lute once heard in lea and hall
    Could charm blue Sirens from the sea,
    As well Semitic Astarte.
    Now shadows fall.

    His grace and words sidereal,
    Those poems once his, they now are ours,
    Such beauty like a crown of stars!
    Now shadows fall.

    He is to me a seneschal
    Of Beauty, breaking every dawn
    Across the burns and dewy lawn,
    As shadows fall.

    And, sadly now, beyond recall,
    Yet we now have what is, or seems,
    This beauty wrought from godlike dreams,
    Though shadows fall.

      It is a hauntingly lyrical piece, rising and falling on the waves of some ancient ocean. Your respect and regard for your comrade shows in the depth of feeling and thought woven into memorial. It is like a bard spinning golden tales of a fallen king out of love and longing for day gone by. A beautiful wayto immorlize a friend. I am sorry for your loss, but impressed by the bittersweet beauty of this piece.
