Blue Ridge Mountains Echo

She, of flowing strawberry hair, wearing moonlight magnolia blossoms, our honeysuckle vines summer days, we would walk hand in hand by where the cows grazed, her, of a spirit, of sweetest grace, porcelain purity of her face, eyes of forest green flecked with fireflies, in them the moon would rise, my dear God, don't veil memories that lovingly occur, let my youth of olden live in the rhapsody of her, in blessed dreams she still shyly sings, Blue Ridge mountains echo of my mourning devotion to Claire, and I seem to sense she's still there.

Lovely tribute, Regina set in one of the most beautiful places. When coming to America, my family settled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. You have set the scene perfectly! Blue Ridge blessings to you.

Hi Sam, my late husband's family is from the foothills of the Blue Ridge mountains too ! He was from Asheville, NC. After he got out of the Navy, we returned to his hometown. He passed away last year. Blue Ridge blessings also to you. ~
