Elizabeth's Words

I open her book of poetry
When I need to run away.
Serenity washes over me,
Banishing stresses of the day.

Her melodic rhymes entice me,
My imagination begins to soar.
The kind of poet I strive to be,
Her work leaves me wanting more.

Passionate words and phrases
In rhyme and rhythmic flow.
Each poem awes and amazes
Causing my inspiration to grow.

She writes with flourish and with flair.
A poetess beyond compare.

for Elizabeth Wesley, poetess beyond compare

    Very nice tribute to Elizabeth. For the contest, will you want the sonnet in iambic pentameter, or will any meter suffice, as in oyur example?

    Honestly Francine, I am humbled by your words and don't deserve the praise you so lavishly give. How can I thank you for this sweet tribute. I surely feel so fortunate to have met so many wonderful people here on Soup and you are among the best. Thank you my darling, I'm amazed more than you might know! Luv, Elizabeth
