A Poet

Loss carried with strength.
Loss that goes on through out his life.
He will never put it down..
It lingers like her perfume.

A fine heart, important to his friends.
Able to write words that grab the soul
And wont let go.

A sense of humor..a word or phrase
That brings a smile and lightens 
The load for a moment.

A man with a gift for teaching 
his craft. Gaining respect, admiration
And love from his students.

Pride in knowing that he is more than a friend
And that he has gained the respect of his peers
here on the soup.

It’s easy to love H. Garvey Daniel, Esquire.

    Barbara, I can see HG was elated by your wonderful tribute. He deserves every word! I love his writing almost as much as I adore his kind heart. (By the way, you called me "Sharon" in a comment you made on my poem. I take it as a compliment.) Hope you haven't been working too hard. Love to you! Carolyn

He does indeed have my great respect, admiration and love. Almost crying here. Thank you for such a thoughtful, moving dedication. Love and warmest wishes to you both. And good luck! Love, Shar
